Nearly 400 officers responded to the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde but failed to engage the shooter for over an hour because officer safety was prioritized over saving innocent children, according to a new report.

From AP:
Nearly 400 law enforcement officials rushed to a mass shooting at a Uvalde elementary school, but “systemic failures” created a chaotic scene that lasted more than an hour before the gunman who took 21 lives was finally confronted and killed, according to a report from investigators released Sunday.

The nearly 80-page report was the first to criticize both state and federal law enforcement, and not just local authorities in the Texas town for the bewildering inaction by heavily armed officers as a gunman fired inside a fourth-grade classroom.

“At Robb Elementary, law enforcement responders failed to adhere to their active shooter training, and they failed to prioritize saving innocent lives over their own safety,” the report said.
Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin risked prosecution on Sunday for releasing new video from police body cams showing officers unsure of how to respond.

A mass shooting on Sunday at Greenwood Park Mall in Indianapolis that killed at least three and injured two others was reportedly stopped cold thanks to a Good Samaritan armed with a handgun shooting and killing the gunman.
