A Florida judge ruled Monday that surveillance video from outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School during the Feb. 14 shooting that left 17 people dead should be made public. 

The judge sided with several news outlets that filed a lawsuit seeking the release of the footage, The Associated Press reported.

The Broward County Sheriff’s Office and School Board fought against the video's release due to their active investigations into the shooting.


The judge stayed his order until noon on Thursday to allow for a possible appeal, the AP reported.
