fort lauderdale - The armed guard, who was present at the shooting incident at the Florida school, stood outside the building and stayed outside when the shooter wriggled Nikolas Cruz inside a massacre.

The guard at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland has resigned from the department as a result, sheriff Scott Israel of Broward County has announced. He had previously put the man on non-active, but did not want to say whether the guard is also prosecuting.

The sheriff said he had suspended the guard after seeing video footage showing how it had responded to the shooting that killed seventeen people. 'What I saw was that the agent arrived at the west side of building 12, took his position, but never went inside. '

According to sheriff Israel, the massacre that led Cruz inside lasted six minutes. The guard had arrived at the building ninety seconds after the shooter fired the first shots. Then he had been waiting outside for more than four minutes.

'He should have gone in, confronting the shooter and killing him,' the sheriff said, asking what the guard could have done.

The sheriff also started an investigation into two agents who had had to deal with the Cruz and his brother in the past. It is being investigated whether they could have done or should do more. Since 2008, the sheriff's office received 23 reports about Cruz or his brother, Israel said.
