FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — A Florida detective told investigators the former deputy entrusted to protect a high school where 17 people died in a mass shooting last year gave an initial statement filled with inaccuracies about his actions. Broward Sheriff’s Office Detective John Curcio told investigators that ex-deputy Scot Peterson’s story about what happened at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland contains many inconsistencies when compared with video evidence. “There is almost, on every detail that he gave in the statement, inaccuracies,” Curcio said. Curcio is the lead investigator in the criminal case against Nikolas Cruz, 20, who faces the death penalty if convicted in the shooting.
