Texas shooting response was ‘wrong’ admit officials – BBC News

BBC News published this video item, entitled “Texas shooting response was ‘wrong’ admit officials – BBC News” – below is their description.

Authorities in Texas have admitted they made a “wrong decision” when dealing with a gunman who killed 19 children and two adults at a primary school in Uvalde.

Safety official Steven McCraw confirmed there had been a 40-minute gap from the police unit’s arrival at Robb Elementary School to the moment they decided to storm the classroom where the gunman had barricaded himself.

The incident has once again raised the issue of gun regulation in the US which has seen former President Donald Trump also weighing in on the debate during an NRA (National Rifle Association) conference in Texas.
