According to a report, many officers were at Rob Elementary School during the May 24 shooting with rifles and a shield, but did not enter Uwalde, Texas classroom for almost an hour.
KVUE reports that they have exclusive footage showing “multiple employees inside the building for 19 minutes” after the shooter showed up at the school. But they failed to enter the classroom, where the shooter was for another 58 minutes.
KVUE also reports:
Based on the latest information, it is estimated that 11 employees entered the school within three minutes of the shooter. District Police Chief Pete Aredondo reportedly called a landline at the Uwalde Police Department at 11:40 a.m. for help.
Chief Arendondo reportedly called and said:
It’s an emergency right now, we have it in the room. He has an AR-15. He fired a lot … They have to be prepared outside the building, because we don’t have firepower at the moment. It’s all guns.
Arendondo did not have his own radio at the time, KVUE reported.
The findings include a schedule that will be presented at a hearing in the Texas Senate on Tuesday.
