77 minutes of terror: CCTV shows police in hallway – and getting hand sanitiser – while gunman attacks

A new video has been released showing how a fatal shooting occurred in a Texas school.

Salvador Ramos attacked Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, killing 19 children and 2 teachers.

The video shows an 18-year old gunman, after he crashes his pickup truck and enters the building. He is carrying an AR-15 assault rifle and walking unassisted down a hallway at 11.33 am on 24 May.

A child runs away from the hallway just moments later.

Two-and-a half minutes later, the first police officers arrive. Two officers approach the classroom but then retreat when shots are fired.

More police officers arrive at 11.52am, armed with guns, wearing body armor and carrying ballistic shields. However, they can be seen milling about in the hallway.

Another officer can be seen at 12.30pm stopping to use hand sanitizer.

Officers break into the classroom and shoot the gunman at 12.50pm, 77 minutes after he entered the school.

The footage was captured from the school’s hallway CCTV. Parts of it were published by KVUE and the Austin American-Statesman newspaper.

Federal, state, and local investigations have focused on the aftermath of the massacre and the delays in law enforcement response.

Families of victims have been campaigning to release the footage and will be able to see the entire recording this weekend.

Publication of the results of an investigation conducted by Texas’ state legislature is also planned.

Residents of Uvalde were angered at what the footage showed, and they demanded that police take action.

A report from the Texas Department of Public Safety earlier this month found that a Uvalde officer could have shot Ramos at the school before he entered it, but he hesitated and waited to get permission from a supervisor.

Steve McCraw, the director of the department, stated in a statement that the video provided “horrifying evidence” the failure to respond to law enforcement.

He said that the families of the victims should have been able to see the footage first and that he was deeply disappointed by the newspaper’s decision not to publish it.

Uziyah Garcia, the 10-year-old boy of Brett Cross, was killed in the shooting. Nobody is telling anything. It’s also disrespectful to our memories, as well as those of our children.”
