Footage from inside the school shows the gunman shooting in corridors
New footage from this year’s deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida, shows officials were “underprepared” and “overwhelmed”, local media say.
Surveillance footage from inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School was revealed on Friday as part of a 10-month investigation by the South Florida Sun Sentinel.
The footage shows “58 minutes of chaos” on the campus, the Sun Sentinel says.
Seventeen people died in the shooting in February, including 14 students.
“A gunman with an AR-15 fired the bullets, but a series of blunders, bad policies, sketchy training and poor leadership helped him succeed,” the Sun Sentinel says, after it reconstructed events using surveillance footage and official reports.
Its investigation comes as a preliminary report into the shooting is set to be delivered to state officials on 1 January.
A draft version, from the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission, was released earlier this month.
