Uvalde Mayor Says Robb Elementary School Will Be Demolished
Robb Elementary School, where 19 students and two teachers were gunned down, is set to be torn down.
At a City of Uvalde council news conference, mayor Don McLaughlin confirmed the news.
“You can never ask a child to go back or teacher to go back in that school ever,” he said. High school dropout Salvador Ramos, went on a shooting rampage at the school in Uvalde in last month.
We reported earlier that surveillance footage shows that police officers were inside Robb Elementary School for 58 minutes without entering the classroom or taking down the shooter.
According to investigate reporter Tony Plohetski, Multiple officers were inside Robb Elementary School with rifles and at least one ballistic shield at 11:52 a.m. the day of the shooting.
The video and other evidence show they didn’t enter the classroom for another 58 minutes. Investigators believe this is significant because it indicates they had more than enough firepower and protection to enter the classroom before they did.
Officers were growing impatient far sooner: “If there’s kids in there we need to go in there,” one said on body camera video.”
