Video footage recorded at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School during the mass shooting there on Feb. 14 may be released to the public. On Monday afternoon, a judge in Broward County, Fla. ruled in favor of publicly releasing the footage.
The Washington Examiner reports: The video clip would not be released until Thursday so that students’ faces can be blurred, which would give the state a chance to appeal the decision.
The judge said the benefits of releasing the video outweighed the possible harm to the state’s prosecution of suspected gunman Nikolas Cruz.
The footage is expected to show the high school’s resource officer, Scot Peterson, outside the building during the incident and not running inside toward the gunshots.
