New Details Surrounding Uvalde School Shooting Have Surfaced
More details surrounding the Uvalde school shooting have surfaced. According to a law enforcement source close to the investigation, 11 officers including Uvalde School District Police Chief Pete Arredondo were inside Robb Elementary School within three minutes of the gunman entering the school on the day of the shooting. After the gunman fired at officers, he barricaded himself in 2 connecting classrooms and shot and killed 19 students and two teachers. Officers remained stationed in an adjacent hallway during the shooting. Preliminary evidence suggests none of the officers attempted to open either of the doors until moments before taking down the gunman. In recent weeks, the School Police Chief and local authorities have faced criticism over the length of time that passed before they entered the classroom. The gunman entered one of the classrooms at 11:33 a.m. until he was killed by officers at 12:50 p.m.
