Texas (US)- A Texas congressman has called for an investigation into police response to the Uvalde school mass shooting, and experts have started to question the tactics used by first responders to subdue the gunman. Nineteen students and two teachers at Robb Elementary School were killed Tuesday, with several children wounded by bullets.
Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, wrote to FBI Director Christopher Wray, asking him to probe the timeline the Texas Department of Public Safety is providing. “The people of Uvalde, of Texas, and of the nation deserve an accurate account of what transpired,” Castro wrote to Wray. “However, state officials have provided conflicting accounts that are at odds with those provided by witnesses.

“I urge the FBI to use its maximum authority to thoroughly examine the timeline of events and the law enforcement response and to produce a full, timely and transparent report on your findings.” Meanwhile, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said he will return to Uvalde and skip the National Rifle Association convention that begins today in Houston. Abbott recorded a message for the NRA that will be played at the gathering.
Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, and Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, also dropped out of the convention. Former President Donald Trump, along with Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Republican South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem have kept their speaking engagements at the convention. (UI)
