Peterson said his actions during the Valentine's Day massacre "were appropriate under the circumstances." In a statement released by his lawyer, Peterson said he "heard gunshots but believed those gunshots were originating from outside of the buildings on the school campus," according to the release.

The U.S. official in charge of protecting American elections from hacking says the Russians successfully penetrated the voter registration rolls of several U.S. states prior to the 2016 presidential election. In an exclusive interview with NBC News, Jeanette Manfra, the head of cybersecurity at the Department of Homeland Security, said she couldn't talk about classified information publicly, but in 2016, "We saw a targeting of 21 states and an exceptionally small number of them were actually successfully penetrated." read more
