Faulty classroom design and failures in the police radio and 911 systems contributed to the chaos and deaths during the recent Florida high school massacre, a commission investigating the shooting was told at its first meeting Tuesday.Fourteen students and three staff members died in the Feb. 14 shooting, and 17 others were wounded.The commission also will examine the Broward Sheriff's Office's conduct before, during and after the shooting.The commission could also examine other Florida mass shootings, including the 2016 massacre at Orlando's Pulse nightclub that killed 49, and a 2017 shooting at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport that left six dead. Gualtieri suggested that it focus solely on school shootings, however."What everyone is going to find out is how much incompetency there was that led to my daughter and the other 16 victims being murdered," said Andrew Pollack, Meadow's father.He pointed to the FBI, which ignored a warning call about Cruz, and sheriff's and school administrators who had numerous contacts with Cruz before the shooting.
