Florida sheriff suspended after criticism for school shooting response

TAMPA, Fla., Jan 11 (Reuters) - Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on Friday suspended the local sheriff criticized for the police response to last year's mass shooting that left 17 dead at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, according to news reports.
