The US Department of Justice announced on Sunday that it is reviewing the delayed police response to the elementary school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, at the request of the city’s mayor. Police officers waited for around an hour outside the adjoining classrooms because a commander on scene incorrectly thought no lives were at risk, officials said on Friday, adding that it was “the wrong decision.”
The Uvalde school district police chief — who made the decision not to breach the classrooms — was to be sworn in Tuesday, but the mayor postponed the meeting because of funerals.
Officers in Uvalde, Texas, took more than an hour to kill a shooter who massacred 19 children. That lapse of time will likely be a key part of a Justice Department probe that could last months.
