On May 24, a shooting took place at the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, which ultimately claimed the lives of 19 students and 2 teachers.
Less than a month after a horrific massacre at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, which claimed the lives of 19 students and two teachers, the mayor of the town announced that the school will be torn down.
During the Uvalde city council meeting that took place on Tuesday and was shown live by the CBS affiliate KENS in San Antonio, Mayor Don McLaughlin was presented with a question regarding the possibility of the school being “demolished.”
McLaughlin’s response to the question of whether or not the school would be torn down was, “I assume that it will be.” Uvalde’s Mayor Don McLaughlin says, “We could never expect a student or a teacher to return there.” This is the mayor’s assessment of the situation.
The director of the Department of Public Safety in Texas discussed the mass shooting that occurred on May 24 during a hearing that took place on Tuesday in the Texas Senate. He stated that officers may have been able to stop the gunman if the commander had not delayed in his answer.
McCraw was candid in his analysis of the response by law enforcement, describing it as “a horrific failure” and saying that the police could have stopped the shooter in the school within three minutes if they had arrived there.
