The video showing law enforcement response to the Feb. 14 shooting that killed 17 people was scheduled for release Friday. But the 4th District Court of Appeal granted a 10-day delay sought by the Broward County school board so the decision can be reviewed by the Florida Supreme Court.

The appeals court previously ordered disclosure of the video as sought by media organizations including The Associated Press. The school board contends releasing the video might reveal security blind spots at the school. Prosecutors had also opposed release.

Nineteen-year-old Nikolas Cruz faces the death penalty if convicted of the mass shooting.
