UVALDE – Footage from a Robb Elementary School hallway has been released and shows what officers were doing while a gunman was inside the school shooting.
On May 24, 2022, Salvador Ramos shot his grandmother in the face then went to Robb Elementary and killed a total of 21 people. Since the massacre, many questions have been asked as to why police did not act sooner.
Now, footage from a hallway security camera has been released. Watch the footage below. The screaming has been edited out of the video. A breakdown of what occurred in the footage is also listed below.
The video shows Ramos' truck crashing near the school. Ramos shot at two men who approached the vehicle then a teacher called 911.
After the teacher called, Ramos started shooting at the school from the parking lot.
Video shows Ramos with a long gun enter the school at 11:33 a.m. A student sees Ramos walked to the other end of the hallway as Ramos starts firing his weapon.
At 11:36 a.m., three minutes later, police enter the school from the same side of the hallway Ramos did. Several officers rushed down the hallway towards the classroom Ramos had entered.
One minute later, at 11:37 a.m., shots can be heard and officers can be seen running back down the hallway towards fellow officers.
At 11:52 a.m., more officers appear at the entrance of the hallway.
36 minutes after Ramos entered the school, no attempts, other than the officers running down the hall right after Ramos entered a classroom, had been made to save students or staff.
At 12:21 p.m., several officers start making their way down the hallway towards the classroom Ramos is in.
At 12:50 p.m., officers breach the classroom Ramos was in and kill the gunman.
