Shocking security footage from May’s school massacre in Uvalde, Texas, released Tuesday shows the gunman entering the building and then a classroom where he began firing his AR-15 at children whose screams are chopped out of the film provided by the media.
Later in the footage, cops can be seen huddled outside in the corridor, doing nothing for more than an hour while the shooter stays in a classroom.
The Austin American-Statesman got a 77-minute surveillance tape, which it then edited into a 4-minute film with some audio erased. The violent screams and sounds from the children, nineteen of whom perished, as well as two instructors, were omitted from the publication.
CNN posted this video. The echoes of bullets from the May 24th mass shooting at Robb Elementary School were silenced on Tuesday evening.
The video starts with the shooter smashing his car in front of the school. It then cuts to inside the school, where he enters armed with a weapon.
He shot through classroom windows before entering the building. Armed cops were stationed outside the classroom where the killing was taking place in three minutes.
Finally, once officers show up equipped with ballistic shields and rifles, police can be seen breaching the classroom where the suspect was barricaded. They killed him after opening an unlocked door.
The massacre went on for more than an hour.
The American–Statesman reported:
The video tells in real time the brutal story of how heavily armed officers failed to immediately launch a cohesive and aggressive response to stop the shooter and save more children if possible. And it reinforces the trauma of those parents, friends and bystanders who were outside the school and pleaded with police to do something, and for those survivors who quietly called 911 from inside the classroom to beg for help.
