Cruz is accused of carrying out the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida that also wounded 17 people in a case that has reignited a national debate about gun control and school safety.

A Florida judge earlier this week agreed with news outlets including The Associated Press that the video should be released.

He then quickly turns and jumps into a golf cart, along with a staff member, to investigate the gunshots at the 1200 building.

Cruz has been largely isolated since the shooting, according to jail records made public by the Broward County sheriff's office last week. "After being suspended without pay, Peterson chose to resign and immediately retired rather than face possible termination", the department said in a brief statement with the video's release.

At least 20 green-clad deputies from the Broward Sheriff's Office formed a tight ring of security around the courtroom.

At a February news conference, Israel said Peterson should have "w$3 ent in". In one of the calls, Peterson tells the dispatcher that shooter Nikolas Cruz was in the parking lot outside the school - in truth, Cruz was still in the building.

Authorities were set to release surveillance video Thursday showing what happened outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School during the Valentine's Day massacre that killed 17 people. President Donald Trump has called Peterson a "coward" for not entering the building.

His attorney says Peterson did nothing wrong.

Last week, the Broward County State Attorney's Office announced a grand jury indictment charging Cruz with 17 counts of first-degree premeditated murder and 17 counts of first-degree attempted murder. A few seconds later, he can be seen coming up behind an unidentified employee who had just knocked on a school door.

The footage apparently shows Peterson remaining in that area for the next 20-plus minutes of the clip. More students can be seen running, more officers can be seen responding in the corner of the video screen, while Deputy Peterson remains outside. It took officers 11 minutes to finally enter the building from the time the shooting was first reported. Images of students who appear in the footage are pixelated.
