The investigation is centered on Peter Arredondo, who is the head of the school’s police department.
The Daily Mail reports that the city of Uvalde is making an effort to avoid complying with document requests on the police response to the slaughter that took place at Robb Elementary School a month ago.
Following the tragic event in which 19 children and two teachers were slain, the Uvalde police department is coming under fire for its response. Over an hour and a half, the police maintained a presence in front of the two classrooms where Salvador Ramos, 18, carried out his attack.
The city replied to requests for public documents by arguing against fulfilling the requests. To do so, the city sought the advice of legal counsel and wrote a letter to the Attorney General of Texas, Ken Paxton.
According to the Mail, attorney Cynthia Trevino wrote a letter to the City in which she stated that “The City claims that the requested information is not information that is collected, assembled, or maintained under a law or ordinance or in connection with the conduct of official business by a governmental body or for a governmental body or is excepted from disclosure.”
