Cape Breton Post - - WORLD -

FORT LAUD­ERDALE, Fla. — Newly re­leased re­ports are pro­vid­ing more de­tails about the law en­force­ment re­sponse to the mas­sacre of 17 peo­ple at a high school in Park­land, Florida.

The Coral Springs po­lice re­leased re­ports on Mon­day from sev­eral of its re­spond­ing of­fi­cers, who say Broward County deputies got there first but had not en­tered the build­ing where peo­ple were at­tacked.

Of­fi­cer Gil Mon­zon wrote that two deputies told him they didn’t know where the shooter was. But Mon­zon said he could see a vic­tim ly­ing next to the fresh­man build­ing, and bul­let marks in the third-floor win­dows. He and three other Coral Springs of­fi­cers went in­side and found other dead and wounded vic­tims. Broward deputies have been crit­i­cized for not im­me­di­ately try­ing to con­front 19-yearold Niko­las Cruz at Mar­jory Stone­man Dou­glas High School.
