By Breitbart. The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) revealed Thursday that the gunman who murdered 19 children and two teachers in Uvalde on Tuesday walked into the school through an unlocked door, and did not encounter any school police.
Previously, the media had been informed that the 18-year-old who carried out a mass shooting at the Robb Elementary School had been confronted by an armed school resource officer outside school, and had exchanged gunfire with him.
On Thursday, DPS Regional Director Victor Escalon told reporters that at 11:28 a.m. on Tuesday, after the gunman crashed a pickup truck near the school, he began his attack. The gunman climbed a four-foot-high chain link fence around the school, and fired at the school as he approached. He also fired at two eyewitnesses at a funeral home nearby. By 11:40 a.m., he had approached the west side of the school. He “was not confronted by anybody” outside the school, armed or otherwise.
Escalon added that there was no school resource officer on campus, and that the first report came to police at 11:30 a.m.
Though said it was still uncertain, it appeared that the shooter had entered the building through an unlocked door. He said that further investigation could reveal that the door was unlocked, but that at the moment it appeared to have been unlocked.

Mom Briefly Handcuffed for Urging Cops to Enter School, Then Rushed in to Save Her Kids: Report
By Daily Wire. A mother of two students at Robb Elementary School, in Uvalde, Texas, alleged being briefly cuffed by U.S. Marshals on Tuesday after she urged officers to enter the school while an active shooter was still inside. After persuading her release, the mother said she hopped a fence and rushed into the school, sprinting back out after she grabbed her children.
An 18-year-old male, who will not be named per Daily Wire policy, killed at least 19 children and two adults at the elementary school on Tuesday.
“The police were doing nothing,” mother Angeli Rose Gomez accused, according to The Wall Street Journal. “They were just standing outside the fence. They weren’t going in there or running anywhere.”
Gomez, a farm supervisor, reportedly drove some 40 miles to the school after she learned her second- and third-grade children were at risk.
Gomez says that “she was one of numerous parents waiting outside the school who began encouraging—first politely, and then with more urgency—police and other law enforcement to enter the school sooner,” the Journal report outlined. “After a few minutes, she said, U.S. Marshals put her in handcuffs, telling her she was being arrested for intervening in an active investigation.” (Read more from “Mom Briefly Handcuffed for Urging Cops to Enter School, Then Rushed in to Save Her Kids: Report” HERE)
