Broward County (Fla.) Sheriff Scott Israel said Thursday that a deputy was at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School while gunman Nikolas Cruz was shooting but “never went in,” even though the officer heard the gunshots and “clearly” knew a gunman was inside the school.

Seventeen people died as a result of the shooting last week.

“We’re not going to disclose the video at this time, and we may never disclose the video depending on the prosecution and the criminal case. What I saw was a deputy arrive at the west side of building 12, take up a position, and he never went in,” Sheriff Israel said.

The deputy, Scott Peterson, was suspended without pay and has since resigned.

“Devastated, sick to my stomach, there are no words,” Israel said.
