Officers Guarding Former Deputy’s Home After Inaction During Mass Shooting

(Palm Beach County, FL) – Police officers are guarding the home of the Florida deputy who took a position near the scene of the massacre at a Parkland high school last week but never went in. fl-1519380853-h9wqtbbam2-snap-image Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School resource officer Scott Peterson resigned yesterday after surveillance video surfaced showing the deputy waiting outside the school instead of taking action to confront the shooter.

Members of the press tried to engage Peterson at his home yesterday but were turned away by several Palm Beach County police officers. The shooter opened fire with an AR-15 rifle killing 17 people and wounding several others. Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel says Peterson was outside the building for roughly four minutes while the shooting in total lasted around six minutes. Israel said the officer never fired his weapon.

The “New York Times” reported that in February of 2016, the sheriff’s office received information that the shooter, Nikolas Cruz, was planning to “shoot up the school.” That information was then forwarded to Peterson who was working at the school at that time.
