    5         b. “Killing of a victim of mass violence” means acts or
    6  events that cause the death of a person, not including the
    7  perpetrator, who is killed in an incident in which three or more
    8  people, not including the perpetrator, are killed by an
    9  intentional act of violence by another person. The term includes
   10  acts or events that show a person being killed in such incident
   11  or show the body of a person killed in such incident. The term
   12  does not include such acts or events if the person who causes
   13  the death is a public official or public employee who is acting
   14  within the scope of his or her duties or under color of office.
   15         2.(2) A photograph or video or audio recording that depicts
   16  or records the killing of a law enforcement officer who was
   17  acting in accordance with his or her official duties or the
   18  killing of a victim of mass violence is confidential and exempt
   19  from s. 119.07(1) and s. 24(a), Art. I of the State
   20  Constitution, except that a surviving spouse of the decedent may
   21  view and copy any such photograph or video recording or listen
   22  to or copy any such audio recording. If there is no surviving
   23  spouse, then the surviving parents shall have access to such
   24  records. If there is no surviving spouse or parent, the then an
   25  adult children child shall have access to such records. Nothing
   26  in this paragraph precludes a surviving spouse, parent, or adult
   27  child of the victim from sharing or publicly releasing such
   28  photograph or video or audio recording.
