Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick on Uvalde police response: 'We were not told the truth'

Patrick also said that the decision not to more quickly move in against the gunman was a “bad decision, and that decision cost lives.”

TEXAS GUNMAN WAS KNOWN AS ‘YUBO SCHOOL SHOOTER,’ MADE THREATS ON SOCIAL APP, ACCORDING TO USERS

LT. GOV. DAN PATRICK: We were told that there was a security officer and they were a little hazy on how the engagement went, but that a security officer was there. Well, it turned out he was not on campus. He drove on to the campus, but he was not on campus, as we were told and led to believe. No one mentioned the fact that there was this 45 minute-to-an-hour hold by the chief of the police of the school district while there were still shots being fired. Now, we believe that most of those shots were being fired into the door of the wall to hold back law enforcement. But we don’t know.

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick claimed state officials were "not told the truth" about law enforcement's initial response to the Uvalde school shooting on "Fox & Friends Weekend" Saturday, May 28, 2022.
