After Parkland massacre, a death penalty case and multiple investigations examine what happened


February 19, 2019

A year after an attacker in a Parkland, Fla., high school gunned down 17 students and faculty members and wounded 17 others, the mass shooting — and what happened before and after it — have become the focus of multiple inquiries, including an ongoing criminal case and statewide investigations.

This web of examinations, which include a death penalty case against the confessed shooter and probes looking at the actions of law enforcement and school officials, is a broad response to a tragedy marked by repeated missteps. One investigation already faulted law enforcement officers and school officials, while another is still looking at the police response. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) this week called for a new probe to be carried out by a grand jury looking at Parkland as well as broader school-security issues.
