In Florida, police arrested the former Broward County sheriff’s deputy who was responsible for security at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, at the time of last year’s mass shooting. Scot Peterson was charged with 11 counts, including felony child neglect. Shortly after the February 2018 massacre, in which 17 students, staff and teachers were killed, Peterson came under fire for his apparent inaction as the shooting unfolded. Footage was released of Peterson positioned outside the school, where he remained for over 45 minutes as approximately 75 gunshots went off.
