Stoneman Douglas watchman questioned by lawyers for Andrew Pollack

Andrew Medina, the former watchman criticized for his failure to call for a “code red” when Nikolas Cruz arrived on the campus of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last year, was grilled for hours Monday by attorneys for the father of one of the victims of the massacre.

Medina was joined by former Broward Sheriff’s Deputy Scot Peterson, the school resource officer who resigned under pressure after officials berated him for failing to engage Cruz once the shooting began.

Medina and Cruz are among the people sued by Andrew Pollack, whose daughter, Meadow, was killed on the third floor of the 1200 building at Stoneman Douglas on Feb. 14, 2018.

As part of that lawsuit, attorneys are entitled to question each defendant and other witnesses — Peterson is scheduled to be questioned Tuesday. While most interviews, formally called depositions, are taking place in law offices, Peterson and Medina are being questioned in the courthouse as a security precaution.
