AUSTIN, Texas – An official news source has released a portion of the 77-minute hallway video from the deadly Uvalde elementary school massacre back on May 24.

Republican representative Dustin Burrows previously indicated the video would not be released until families had the chance to review it, stating its anticipated release for this coming Saturday.

Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steven McCraw also released a statement, saying he was “deeply disappointed this video was released.”

Despite the plan, the video was posted by Austin American-Statesman online on Tuesday.

Elected officials and others took to social media in response of the video.

The head of Texas’ state police met again Monday with a committee investigating the Uvalde elementary school shooting as anger over why officers waited so long to confront the gunman mounts among families of the 21 people killed inside a fourth-grade classroom.

Hundreds of people, including relatives of some of the 19 children killed, gathered and marched in Uvalde under searing 100-degree (37.78 Celsius) heat during the weekend in a renewed push for answers and accountability.

State police and an investigative committee formed by the Texas House say they want to release a 77-minute surveillance video of the hallway where police, armed with rifles and bulletproof shields, gathered during the shooting but waited more than an hour before breaching the classroom. But state police insist they can’t because they don’t have authorization from the district attorney in Uvalde County.
