    Court: Release Surveillance Video in MSD Shooting

    An appeals court says news organizations are entitled to obtain surveillance video showing the law enforcement response to the Valentine's Day mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

    (Published Wednesday, July 25, 2018)

    A Florida court has agreed to delay release of exterior surveillance video from the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting and give the local school board time to appeal.

    The video showing law enforcement response to the Feb. 14 shooting that killed 17 people was scheduled for release Friday. But the 4th District Court of Appeal granted a 10-day delay sought by the Broward County school board so the decision can be reviewed by the Florida Supreme Court.

    The appeals court previously ordered disclosure of the video as sought by media organizations including The Associated Press. The school board contends releasing the video might reveal security blind spots at the school. Prosecutors had also opposed release.

    Nineteen-year-old Nikolas Cruz faces the death penalty if convicted of the mass shooting.
