Uvalde, TX – On Monday, the state House committee investigating the response to the mass murders at Robb Elementary will hear testimony from responding law enforcement officers. It is the third day of testimony in Uvalde.

The four officers scheduled to testify are Uvalde police chief Daniel Rodriguez, UPD Sgt. Daniel Coronado, Uvalde CISD officer Adrian Gonzalez, and Department of Public Safety Trooper Joshua Bordovsky.

Testimony is held behind closed doors, meaning victims’ families, Uvalde community members and the media are not allowed to hear what is said.

However, KPRC 2 Investigates has learned more about how police responded, which is described as a “complete breakdown of command control” by one state senator.

The shooting that led to the deaths of 19 children and two teachers took place in two classrooms that were next door to each other.

Investigators found that when police responded, officers did not test the classroom doors to see if they were unlocked, instead waiting to find a master key, according to State Senator Paul Bettencourt, a Republican representing District 7.

“What we’re finding out is apparently there was an unopened door…It’s really a sad reveal we found out about,” said Bettencourt. “Apparently they were using keys on other doors to find the master key.”

Bettencourt said it appeared the shooter was able to gain access through one of the unlocked classroom doors. The door was left untested afterwards by police.
