Texas shooting: Police admit ‘wrong decision’ to delay confronting gunman

Washington Correspondent

Police chiefs in Uvalde, Texas, have admitted that the delay in confronting the gunman who shot 19 children and two teachers at a primary school was the “wrong decision” – and revealed that at least two children inside the school called 911 as the attack was taking place.

But while Uvalde is still completely overwhelmed by grief, America’s biggest gun rights lobby group, the National Rifle Association, is beginning its annual convention tonight, across the state in Houston.
