At a Coral Springs book signing, Andrew Pollack (Why Meadow Died) revealed new information about the tragic events at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School. Pollack’s daughter Meadow was among the 17 people killed in February 2017. As part of his wrongful death lawsuit against the Broward School District, Pollack deposed numerous school employees.

Pollack told a large crowd at Barnes & Noble about a deposition last week of school monitor David Taylor.

Previous published reports documented how school safety monitor Andrew Medina warned Taylor that N.C. was on campus. “Medina radioed another coach and security monitor, David Taylor, about Cruz, saying ‘keep your eyes open.’ When Taylor heard gunfire, he hid in a janitor’s closet.”

According to Pollack, when Taylor received the call from Medina, he left his location on the second floor. When Taylor arrived on the first floor, he came face to face with the shooter. Pollack said surveillance video shows the shooter had yet to take his gun from his bag when Taylor arrived on the first floor.

Instead of calling for help or confronting N.C., Taylor ran and hid in a second floor closet.

Even though Taylor was in that closet with radio and his cell phone, he never called in a Code Red. Taylor remained silent when the gunfire triggered the fire alarm. Taylor cowered in silence when a school principal ordered an evacuation due to the fire alarm.
