Newly released documents show a Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School monitor was the first person to see the suspected shooter enter the building.
Unarmed school monitor Andrew Medina said he saw the shooter get out of an Uber and walk toward the school with his head hung low.
Medina then alerted school resource officer Scot Peterson, and another school monitor.
However, it was too late as the shooter entered the building and began firing shots within minutes.
Medina said he recognized the shooter immediately as the former student, who many believed was likely to commit a shooting.
“He sees my golf cart and he runs, he starts running to the building, inside the building,” Medina explained to investigators. “I’m talking about he ran in and not even a minute after he was in we heard, I heard the first bang.”
The school monitor said he wishes he had been able to stop the shooting, but he was just doing his job.
