Young Texas school shooting victim ‘soaked in blood’ waiting for help: family

One of the young victims of the Texas school massacre was stabbed to death while waiting nearly an hour for police to come to the rescue — possibly dying because of the delay, a first-responder reportedly told her mother. .

Texas State Sen. Roland Gutierrez said on Nation World News’s “State of the Union” that the girl’s heartbroken mother recalled how the activist told her the child could have been alive if police hadn’t been slow to move on the killer. , The Hill reported.

“Her child had a bullet in the back, part of the kidney,” Gutierrez told the outlet. “The first responders they eventually spoke to said their baby was likely to bleed.

“With an extra 30 or 40 minutes, that little girl could have been alive,” the Democratic lawmaker said. “So purely because of these mistakes these kids may even die.”

Police in Uvalde, Texas, are under criticism for their handling of Tuesday’s massacre, in which 19 fourth-grade teachers and two teachers were killed and 17 others injured, police said.

Robb Elementary School was not broken into more than 90 minutes after police reached the campus where the 18-year-old gunman, Salvador Ramos, fatally shot his innocent victims with an AR-15 assault rifle.

Ramos was eventually shot to death when police finally broke into the surrounding classrooms, where he had begun his slaughter.

Several students even pleaded with the police to come to their aid – as officers are stationed outside, out of harm’s way, before being killed.

Among those facing investigation for the delay is Uvalde school district police chief Pete Arredondo, who reportedly called the police to call back when the shooting began.

On Sunday, the police were guarding the chief’s house and keeping journalists away.

“Pete Arredondo is a coward,” said neighbor Lydia Torres. “He didn’t do his job. He failed the kids.”

Questions have also been raised whether Arredondo also had a police radio with him when he made the fatal decision outside the school.

The Texas Rangers are leading the investigation into the mass shooting and have yet to announce the motive for the bloodshed.

Some have suggested that Ramos was upset about not graduating from high school and wanted to shoot his classmates when they visited elementary school – an annual tradition in the small Texas town.

That meeting took place on Monday, a day before the execution of the murder.
