BSO releases Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School surveillance video

The video raises further questions about the actions of the officer, Scot Peterson, who was a Broward sheriff's deputy assigned as the lone armed officer protecting Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Newly released footage of the Parkland shooting shows former Broward Deputy Scot Peterson standing outside of the Florida high school as the gunman kills 17 people inside.

Authorities previously said the footage showed that Peterson never went inside the building where the gunman was shooting at students and school staff.

While outside, Peterson provided frequent updates on police radio, according to a timeline provided by the sheriff's office, including directing other officers to the building on the large campus and asking for nearby streets to be shut down.

Sheriff Scott Israel said that the video showed the deputy doing "nothing" as the gunman killed 14 students and three educators. "After being suspended without pay, Peterson chose to resign and immediately retired rather than face possible termination".

Mr Peterson has also said that he believed that the shooter was outside of the building, not inside where the killings took place.

The video shows Peterson standing near the entrance to the building. When another officer later said some students had reported possible firecrackers by the football field, Peterson replied: "We also heard it's by, inside the 1200 building". Peterson was on the scene for 9 minutes before police got inside the building.

His attorney Joseph DiRuzzo claims that Peterson believed the shots were outside; adding that he had been following his training by "taking cover and prompting a lockdown".

Earlier this week a judge authorized the video's release.

Police and school officials had resisted the release, saying it was evidence in an active investigation. A state panel approved by lawmakers is also going to review the law enforcement response to the shooting and prior contacts that officials had with the suspected gunman, who had repeatedly come to the attention of police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation before the massacre.

No other deputies are seen in the video released Thursday. The video released Thursday did not have sound.

Following Israel's comments, Trump attacked the deputy by name the next day, saying he either froze or was a "coward".

The release of the video stemmed from a lawsuit filed by the Miami Herald, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel and other media outlets against BSO and the school district, seeking release of video clips so that the public can "be given the first-hand opportunity to review and evaluate the video and the actions of its government officials".

In the past week, the Broward Sheriff's Office and Coral Springs police released calls illustrating the fear and panic of students and parents on February 14. Defense attorney Melisa McNeill emphasized to the judge that Cruz remains willing "at any time" to plead guilty "in exchange for a waiver of the death sentence" and instead spend the rest of his life behind bars.

Levenson ordered the sheriff's office to release a version of the video with "the identities of the students and unknown witnesses" removed between noon Thursday and noon Friday.
