Uvalde school police chief blamed for slow response to shooting is not responding to investigators, state police say

TEXAS (May 31, 2022)— The Texas Department of Public Safety also has walked back a statement that a teacher had propped open a door used by the shooter to enter the school, saying instead that an automatic lock failed.

Governor Greg Abbott said, that he was misled by the police response at the Robb Elementary School. “I am livid about what happened,” the governor said at a tense press conference in Uvalde. “The information I was given turned out, in part, to be inaccurate, and I am absolutely livid about that,” said Abbott.

“It could have been worse. The reason it was not worse is because law enforcement officials did what they do,” he said Wednesday,” added Abbott .
