‘He never went in’: Parkland school’s designated armed campus cop resigns as it emerges he ‘HID’ outside the school as 17 were killed

A police officer who was on duty at a Florida high school and did nothing to stop gunman Nikolas Cruz when he started his massacre has been suspended.

Deputy Scot Peterson, who was armed with a handgun, did follow police procedure and immediately confront Cruz when he started his rampage killing 17 people with an AR-15 assault rifle, according to the Broward County Sheriff’s department.

Instead he took cover at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School for upwards of four minutes and ‘never went in ‘, according to Sheriff Scott Israel who said Peterson’s actions left him ‘Sick to my stomach. There are no words.’
