Following the announcement, Hunter Pollack, whose sister Meadow was murdered during the tragedy, responded to the news by writing on Twitter: “Former Broward Deputy Scot Peterson has been arrested on felony charges.

Ryan Petty, whose daughter Alaina was murdered in the tragedy, responded to the news in a statement to The Daily Wire: “Today marks another step in the search for accountability for the February 14, 2018 massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High school that took the lives of 17 students and teachers, including my 14-year-old daughter, Alaina. Peterson failed in his duty to protect lives that day, standing behind a cement pillar for 48 minutes while students and teachers were slaughtered. After a year of in-depth investigation, I am pleased that the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and our State Attorney have brought formal charges against former deputy Scot Peterson.”

At least 10 people were killed and 52 others were wounded in a tragic outburst of Chicago gun violence over the weekend, according to police.

Officers with the Chicago Police Department attributed the shootings to rash of gang-related incidents. Many of the shootings occurred between 6 p.m. and early Saturday morning, police said.

One incident left four people wounded near Northwestern University’s Chicago campus early Saturday morning, according to ABC Chicago station WLS.

A 28-year-old man and 26-year-old man said they were standing outside a red van at around 2 a.m. when they heard gunshots and realized they’d been shot, WLS reported. Two other men, ages 28 and 25, were shot in the head around the same area early Saturday, WLS said.
