Judge: Release more video outside Parkland school during shooting

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) — A Florida judge has authorized the release of more surveillance video showing events outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School during the Valentine's Day massacre that killed 17 people.
The Sun Sentinel reports that Broward Circuit Judge Jeffrey Levenson ruled in favor of a request Wednesday from news outlets including The Associated Press. The Broward School Board has two weeks to review the video and appeal the decision.
Levenson ordered some video released last month. It focused on the actions of former Deputy Scot Peterson, who was armed and assigned to the school but never went inside during the shooting.
Attorneys for the school district argued that the release of additional video would weaken school security. Prosecutors say the video shouldn't be released because it's part of an active criminal case.
