Just as is always the case with such tragic events, important new details are emerging in the days following the Uvalde school shooting.

According to several eyewitnesses, police took their time entering the building after the gunmen breached the Uvalde elementary school.

19 children and two teachers were killed during the attack.

Texas officials are now investigating the actions of the police officers present during the attack, or lack thereof..

Witnesses claim that it took upwards of 40 minutes before police entered the building.

A video shows onlookers yelling and pleading with police to enter the building.

“Go in there! Go in there!” a woman can be heard screaming in the video.

Another man, Javier Cazares, lost his fourth grade daughter in the attack.

At one point he brought up the idea to rally the bystanders to charge the school as the police did nothing.

“Let’s just rush in because the cops aren’t doing anything like they are supposed to,” Cazares said.

“More could have been done.”

USA Today reports on these breaking new details:

Texas officials are scrutinizing law enforcement’s response to the first reports that a gunman had breached a Uvalde elementary school Tuesday to determine whether officers failed to act quickly enough before the attacker killed 19 children and two teachers.

Authorities are focusing on an early timeline of law enforcement’s convergence on Robb Elementary School, as some community members pleaded for officers to storm the building, where the 18-year-old gunman had barricaded himself in a fourth grade classroom where most victims died.

“Go in there! Go in there!” nearby women shouted at officers soon after the attack began, said Juan Carranza, 24, who saw the scene from outside his house. The officers did not immediately enter the building, Carranza said.

The Associated Press also reports:

Frustrated onlookers urged police officers to charge into the Texas elementary school where a gunman’s rampage killed 19 children and two teachers, witnesses said Wednesday, as investigators worked to track the massacre that lasted upwards of 40 minutes and ended when the 18-year-old shooter was killed by a Border Patrol team.

“Go in there! Go in there!” nearby women shouted at the officers soon after the attack began, said Juan Carranza, 24, who saw the scene from outside his house, across the street from Robb Elementary School in the close-knit town of Uvalde. Carranza said the officers did not go in.

Javier Cazares, whose fourth grade daughter, Jacklyn Cazares, was killed in the attack, said he raced to the school when he heard about the shooting, arriving while police were still gathered outside the building.

Upset that police were not moving in, he raised the idea of charging into the school with several other bystanders.
