FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — A Florida judge says the 2018 Parkland high school massacre can be reenacted on campus by both sides in lawsuits against former Broward Sheriff’s Deputy Scot Peterson, the sheriff’s office and others. The judge did not rule on whether video of the reenactments will be played at the trial, which has not been scheduled. Families of the 17 killed and 26 injured at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School are suing. The reenactments will involve firing almost 140 blanks from a gun similar to the shooter’s. They will try to determine what Peterson heard during the six-minute attack. He was recently acquitted of criminal charges accusing him of inaction during the shooting.
