The law enforcement response to a school shooting in Uvalde, Texas that killed 19 children and two teachers was “an abject failure” in which a commander put the lives of officers over those of the children, Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Director Steven McCraw has said.
During a Texas Senate hearing into the May 24 mass shooting on Tuesday, McCraw reiterated that as many as 19 officers waited more than an hour in a hallway outside classrooms 111 and 112 before a US Border Patrol-led tactical team finally made entry.
The development came amid sustained criticism about the police actions after the gunman entered Robb Elementary School and began shooting. Many parents and relatives have expressed deep anger about the police response.
