Survivors, including children, called 911 from the classroom long after 18-year-old Salvador Ramos walked in with an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle while police waited in the hallway outside. the classroom for help. according to Colonel Steven McCraw, director of the Texas Department of Public Safety.
“From the benefit of hindsight… it was the wrong decision, period,” Col McCraw told a news conference at which he was assailed by questions over why police waited for reinforcements before going in.
“From what we know, we believe there should have been an entry as soon as you can.”
