Killed Uvalde Teacher Called Police officer Husband During Massacre, He Tried to Help But Was Held

“We got an officer in whose wife called him plus said she’d been photo and she’s dying… This individual was detained, and they took his gun away from him and escorted him from the scene. “

The spouse of a Robb Elementary school teacher who died throughout the mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas, reportedly responded to her phone call for help, simply to be detained by officers on the scene.

The incident was discussed during a Texas Senate hearing Tuesday, where lawmakers heard from Tx Department of Public Basic safety Director Steve McCraw the husband of slain instructor Eva Mireles, school source officer Ruben Ruiz, was blocked from saving their dying wife.

“ We got an officer whose wife called him and said she’d been shot and she has dying, ” McCraw said. “ He tried to move forward into the hallway. He had been detained, and they took his gun away from him and escorted him off the scene. ”

McCraw also chastised Uvalde police and school police chief Pete Arredondo for the botched operation and for failing to do something in a timely manner to save helpless children from being gunned straight down during the rampage.

“ There is compelling proof that the law enforcement response to the attack at Robb Primary was an abject failing, and antithetical to almost everything we’ve learned over the last 2 decades since the Columbine Massacre, ” McCraw said.

“ Three minutes  after the subject entered the west hallway, there was sufficient number of armed officers wearing entire body armor, to isolate distract and neutralize the subject, ” he said.

“ The only thing stopping a hallway of dedicated officers from entering room 111 and 112 was the on-scene commander, who decided to put the lives of officers prior to the lives of children, ” McCraw said. “ The officers had weapons – the children had none. The officials had body armor – the children had none. ”

McCraw’s testimony came as new images surfaced from school surveillance cameras showing police officers with ballistic shields and rifles anxiously waited over 58 minutes to enter the classroom room where 18-year-old Salvador Ramos had been shooting children.

The new developments also arrive as calls grow regarding Uvalde police to release body cam footage so the community can learn the full range of what really happened that day.
