Fox News released new video on Wednesday showing cops inside Robb Elementary School in Uvalde holding back an armed police officer who wanted to charge into the classroom where his wife and other schoolchildren were being murdered by a crazed gunman.

From Fox News:
A portion of the bodycam video footage of police responding to the Uvalde mass shooting shows officers holding back another officer whose wife was reportedly in the room with the gunman.

The footage, which is making the rounds online, shows law enforcement officers outside a closed classroom with guns drawn. An officer, Ruben Ruiz, makes his way up front, and his fellow officers appear to hold him back.

"She said she’s shot, Tony," Ruiz tells one of the officers before he’s led away from the hallway.

Ruiz’s wife, Eva Mireles, was a teacher still inside the classroom with the gunman. She was ultimately one of two adults killed, along with 19 children that day.

A report released over the weekend found that nearly 400 officers responded to the shooting but failed to engage the shooter for over an hour because officer safety was prioritized over saving innocent children.
