Armed Guard "Never Went In" Florida High School During Shooting

Sheriff Scott Israel [of Parkland, Florida] confirmed that the armed deputy stationed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School during last week's mass shooting "never went in" the building, despite the fact that  "he clearly knew there was a shooting."

Deputy Scot Peterson resigned Thursday, after Israel reviewed surveillance video that showed him failing to engage the shooter, The New York Times reports.

According to Israel, Peterson arrived at the freshman building where the shooting took place 90 seconds after the first shots were fired, then lingered outside for at least 4 minutes. 

Sheriff Israel told reporters that he was "devastated."

"There are no words. These families lost their children. We lost coaches. I've been to the funerals. I've been to the homes where they sit in shiva. I've been to the vigils," Israel continued.
