Uvalde, Texas, residents respond to revelation police waited to engage mass shooter

If you assume that you have a barricaded subject—you cannot assume that,” Uvalde resident Laura de la Cruz told Fox News while holding back tears. “You know it’s a school, you know children are in there, you know the time, you know kids are in those classrooms.

Department of Public Safety Director Steven McCraw said police didn’t immediately engage the shooter porque “the on-scene commander at the time believed that it had transitioned from an active shooter to a barricaded subject.

There were plenty of officers to do what needed to be done, with one exception, is that the incident commander inside believed he needed more equipment and more officers to do a tactical breach at that time,” McCraw said. He also said waiting was thewrong decision.
