FILE - Law enforcement personnel stand outside Robb Elementary School following a shooting, May 24, 2022, in Uvalde, Texas.
When the gunman arrived at the school, he hopped its fence and easily entered through an unlocked back door, police said.
The actions — or more notably, the inaction — of a school district police chief and other law enforcement officers have become the center of the investigation into this week’s shocking school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.
The delay in confronting the shooter — who was inside the school for more than an hour — could lead to discipline, lawsuits and even criminal charges against police.
Officials said he believed the suspect was barricaded inside adjoining classrooms and that there was no longer an active attack. »
