UVALDE, Texas – The Texas Department of Public Safety released a timeline of events leading up to, and during, the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas that left 19 children and two teachers dead. The log of events shows that officers – with rifles – stood and waited in the school hallway for nearly an hour while the gunman carried out the May 24 attack.
Col. Steve McCraw, the Texas public safety chief, called police response an “abject failure,” at a state Senate hearing Tuesday, believing there was enough law enforcement on the scene to have stopped the gunman three minutes after he entered the building. McCraw told the Senate committee that Pete Arredondo, the Uvalde school district police chief, decided to put the lives of officers ahead of the lives of children.
