TX official says law enforcement made the "wrong decision" & should have entered the school sooner
On this edition of Your Call's Media Roundtable, we'll discuss the latest from Uvalde, Texas.
At a press briefing this morning, Texas Department of Public Safety director Steven McCraw said 19 officers were on the scene. The commander made a decision not to enter the building. During this time, the gunman fired 315 rounds into classrooms and two children called 911. One of those children was shot and killed, according to reports.
With the benefit of hindsight, McCraw said not entering was the "wrong decision." From what we know, there should have been an entry. When there is an active shooter, officers should enter the scene and keep shooting. He would not say whether lives would have been saved if officials entered sooner.
