Florida sheriff's office releases surveillance video from school shooting

Then-Broward County Sheriff's Deputy Scot Peterson who was assigned to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School during the

In the video, Peterson is seen with an unidentified school employee walking toward a room at 2:22 p.m., less than a minute after Cruz opened fire.

The video would seem to underscore accusations that Peterson did not act in accordance to the department's active shooter protocol. "(Peterson's) actions were enough to warrant an internal affairs investigation, as requested by Sheriff Scott Israel on February 21.

While he was outside the building, Peterson got on his radio and took a position where he could see the western entry, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said.

Cruz has made brief court appearances since the massacre, but his arraignment Wednesday came as the case has shifted in recent days, with a grand jury handing down a 34-count indictment last week and prosecutors announcing their decision on the death penalty this week.

Newly released footage captured by Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School security cameras show a Broward sheriff's deputy go toward a building at the time a gunman was shooting inside, but the officer stayed outside with his handgun drawn.

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.

Peterson's attorney, Joseph DiRuzzo, did not return a call and email Thursday seeking comment.

Mattis makes surprise Afghanistan visit to talk about peace with Taliban
Last month, Ghani expressed his readiness to initiate negotiations with Taliban for a durable peace in war-ravaged Afghanistan. Approximately 14,000 American forces are now in Afghanistan, up from a low of about 8,500 when Obama left office.

Nearly all of the footage shows dark figures occasionally moving outside the school's Building 12, often while obscured by shadows.

Deputy Scot Peterson can be seen with an unidentified school employee outside a room in the first moments of the massacre.

The footage apparently shows Peterson remaining in that area for the next 20-plus minutes of the clip.

Since then, Mr Peterson has fought back on the characterization of him as a coward, saying through that he had provided valuable help to the special forces team that entered the building.

Greenleaf appears to leave the view. Once he is there, the footage appears to show a few students rushing outside.

Phil Keating reported the details on "Outnumbered Overtime" Thursday.
