Guterres said he spoke with the state emergency communications agency, which regulates 911 calls, and that the 911 calls were handled by the city police at the scene. However, it is not clear whether the information was passed on to the school district police chief who was the commander at the scene.
“They were in contact with the Wolde police officer and the government agency I spoke to did not tell me who it was,” Guterres said.
Guterres said he would like to know more about what happened at the school that day.
“I want to know where the policemen were in that room. I want to know how many of my policemen were there, how many state soldiers there were. I want to know how many state soldiers there were outside. The federal officers were 19 minutes inside, that is, 45 minutes,” Guterres said. Told reporters.
“I would especially like to know who receives 911 calls,” he said.
The CNN State Emergency Communications Commission has contacted the Uvalde Police and the Uvalde Integrated Independent School District to comment on Guttierez’s reports.
The state senator said he received information about the identities of 19 officers on the sidewalk outside the classroom where the Texas Public Security Department Colonel Steven McGrath was on Friday. Guterres promised to share the information with the media as soon as he received it.
“Do not allow them to hide behind the district attorney’s hearing on procedural matters. Do not allow anyone, do not allow this governor to hide behind the local district attorney about these procedural failures, these policy failures. Fake that we are looking at a criminal investigation,” the state senator stressed.
“There have been a lot of failures here,” he said.
Search warrants have been issued for the cell phone of teenage gunman Salvador Ramos, the truck he drove and his grandparents’ house, according to court records obtained by CNN.
A warrant signed Wednesday by Wolde County District Court Judge Camille Dubois allows law enforcement to forensically download Ramos’ iPhone 13 Pro Max.
During the bloodbath, a negotiator tried to call the shooter, but he did not respond, Wolde Mayor Dan McLaughlin told reporters Wednesday.
“They tried every number he could relate to,” McLaughlin said.
The last call of a teacher to her husband
But Mirels’ husband – school district police officer Ruben Ruiz – was unable to save his wife and the 20 people who were murdered at Rob Elementary School.
Ruiz was one of several law enforcement officers who responded to the school during the attack.
“She’s in the classroom, he’s out. It’s terrifying,” Mitchell told the Times Wednesday.
In Texas, the county judge is the county administrator and senior executive.
Mitchell said the words between the teacher and the school district police officer were not clear. But the main news was catastrophic.
“He’s asking his wife outside: ‘I’m dying,’ ‘Mitchell told the Times.
He said he did not know whether Ruiz had leaked the details of his phone call with his wife to Aradonto, who was the commander at the time of the assassination.
The director of the Texas Department of Public Security said the incident commander believed the scene was no longer an active shooting situation but the situation of a prohibited person. Not sure why.
Speaking exclusively to CNN on Wednesday, Arredondo said he would not release any further details while the funeral was taking place.
“We’re going to do it in the end,” the school district police chief said. “If families leave grief behind when this is over, we will do it openly.”
It was an honor to spend the final moments with a heroic teacher
In this small town, everyone knows someone who was deeply affected by the massacre.
It’s Mirals – the teacher who told her husband she was dead.
Maldonado met Mirals and her husband several years ago, when their daughters joined the same football team, KSAT reported.
“He defended his students,” Moldonado said. “She’s a hero to everyone, a hero to her family and to Wolde.”
Mirels’ funeral is scheduled for Friday.
Where the investigation stands now
Local, state and federal investigators will search for more details of the massacre, trying to understand what a horrible mistake it was.
Now, the Texas Rangers are investigating the mass tragedy. Once the company has completed its investigation, Uvalde County District Attorney Christina Busbee said it will review the report and determine how to proceed.
“The Rangers will conclude their investigation. I will reconsider it and then see if there are any criminal charges,” Busby said.
“To provide an independent account of the day’s law enforcement actions and responses, and to identify the lessons and best practices that will enable first responders to be prepared and respond to active shooting events,” a Justice Department spokesman said.
Although the investigation is not over, Thor Eels, executive director of the National Association of Tactical Officers (NTOA), said some ideas are clear.
He said the incident commander’s belief that the shooter was no longer active and his decision not to go into the classroom immediately was “100% flawed”.
“If you are with innocent victims in a classroom and I know the shooting took place, I should involve you,” Eels said. “Even if you stop firing, I’m going to enter the room so I can provide life – saving aid to the victims.”
