Florida Governor Rick Scott asked the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) to immediately investigate law enforcement response to the shooting in Parkland, Sunday.

FDLE  Commissioner, Rick Swearingen, confirmed that they will immediately begin their process.

The head of the Broward County Sheriff's Office says only one of his deputies was on the scene of a shooting at a Florida high school that resulted in 17 deaths.

The sheriff's office is also being scrutinized for apparently mishandling some of the 18 tipster calls related to the suspected shooter
