In the days following the massacre, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said Peterson should have gone into the building and "killed the killer".

The video was released Thursday afternoon after a Florida judge ordered that it be made public.

A minute later, Peterson and two others are seen on a golf cart driving through campus.

The Broward Sheriff's Office released the video Thursday, which shows exactly how the Sheriff's Office responded to the shooting.

On February 22, Sheriff Scott Israel disclosed that Peterson, who was assigned to monitor the campus, had not entered the building to try and thwart the massacre.

Peterson, who resigned after being suspended and is under investigation over his actions, has defended his response to the shooting by arguing that he believed the gunfire was coming from outside, rather than inside, a school building.

More than 10 minutes later, other officers appear to reach Peterson's position.

"Be advised we have possible - could be firecrackers - I think we have shots fired, possible shots fired", Peterson said.

Meanwhile, the troubling failures at the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Sheriff's Office have been partly shrouded from public view.

But in radio transmissions released last week it appears the 32-year veteran deputy knew nearly immediately the shots were coming from inside the freshman building.

The week after the shooting, Israel assailed Peterson for his response, describing the video recording as showing the deputy heading to the building, taking up a position outside and then failing to rush in to confront the gunman, breaking with generally accepted police practice.

In fact, it does not show disgraced Broward County Deputy Scot Peterson doing much of anything. The Broward Sheriff's Office active shooter policy calls for deputies to interrupt a shooting and search for victims when there's a ceasefire.

On the third floor, officers said they found an AR-15 with a magazine still attached.

The deputy failed to confront the gunman during the six-minute rampage, the video's time stamps show, confirming the account of other law-enforcement officers who raised questions about the response by the Sheriff's Office nearly immediately after the shooting.

The 19-year-old former Stoneman Douglas student then mixed in with the fleeing mass and left the school before being arrested 1.6km away more than an hour later. His attorney has said Cruz would plead guilty if prosecutors would not pursue the death penalty, which they have refused to do.

The transmissions also show that Capt. Jan Jordan never radioed orders to deputies telling them to stay out of the building, as some media have reported.

After the shooting, Peterson said through his lawyer he didn't go inside because he thought the shooting happened outside.
