The sheriff’s deputy who was on duty at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School but failed to go in and confront the gunman has resigned to avoid being suspended.
On February 22 the AP tweeted:
ABC 13 reports that Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel confirmed the deputy, Scott Peterson, was no longer with the Sheriff’s department.
Israel said he viewed video of the incident, saw Peterson “arrive at the west side of Building 12, take a position” but never go in. As a result, the sheriff’s office moved to suspend Peterson, who resigned before the suspension could take place.
