Uvalde victim 'may have LIVED' if cops had not been late by 30 minutes, claims family
A Texas school shooting victim bled to death as she waited for police to come to the rescue, a first-responder allegedly told her mother
UVALDE, TEXAS: A Texas school shooting victim bled to death as she waited for police to come to the rescue, a first-responder allegedly told her mother. The child reportedly waited for nearly an hour for cops to arrive, but eventually succumbed to her injuries possibly because of the delay.
The first-responder reportedly claimed her child may have lived if the police had been quicker. “Her child had been shot by one bullet through the back, through the kidney area,” Texas State Sen. Roland Gutierrez said on CNN's 'State of the Union'. “The first responder that they eventually talked to said that their child likely bled out."
“In that span of 30 or 40 minutes extra, that little girl might have lived,” Gutierrez added. “So absolutely these mistakes may have led to the passing away of these children as well.” Police in Uvalde, Texas, have been criticized for their handling of the deadly shooting which left 19 children and two teachers dead at Robb Elementary School. It was reported that they did not breach the school for more than 90 minutes after arriving on the campus where Salvador Ramos was ruthlessly killing the children.
Ramos reportedly stalked Robb Elementary School until he found a classroom door that was unlocked. Before opening fire, the evil gunman snarled, "look at what we have here." Inside a locked classroom, students hid under their desks. They heard Ramos, 18, fire a shot into the room and check the door handle. He then went down the hall to murder 19 children and two teachers.
The mother of a child who survived the attack claimed that Border Patrol agents saved more children than the police could. “[My daughter’s] legs had fallen asleep along with another young girl,” the mom said of her daughter, who survived the shooting. “Border Patrol had to carry her to safety because her legs were asleep and couldn’t run."
“She was the 6th one out, the shooter I believe was still active during that time,” she added. "There was a ton of law enforcement standing outside the perimeter but border patrol agents were the ones getting these kids out."
Ramos was shot dead by a hero off-duty Customs and Border Protection agent from an elite tactical unit. The agent killed Ramos before his evil rampage could claim more lives. Police officials from the Texas Department of Public Safety, US Customs and Border Protection, and various other local agencies responded to the deadly shooting in the small town located about 60 miles east of the Mexico border on Tuesday, May 24. The agent, a member of CBP’s Border Patrol Tactical Unit (BORTAC), rushed to the school while Ramos was still actively carrying out the massacre. The agent began exchanging rounds with the gunman, who was reportedly barricaded inside a fourth-grade classroom. Law enforcement told NBC that the officer was injured in the attack, but managed to kill the shooter before more innocent lives were taken.
