Broward Circuit Judge Jeffrey R. Levenson on Monday ordered the Broward’s Sheriff Office and school board to release surveillance camera recordings from the site of last month’s mass school shooting in Parkland.
Levenson ruled in favor of journalists seeking the video and rejected defense claims that recordings from exterior cameras at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School were exempt from public disclosure.
Levenson ordered the BSO to release the video but stayed the order until noon Thursday to allow an appeal. If the sheriff’s office does not appeal, it would have 24 hours to release the tapes.
The high school is site of one of the largest school shootings in U.S. history. Former student Nikolas Jacob Cruz is accused of killing 17 people and wounding 14 others Feb. 14.
