Uvalde shooting: ‘Systemic failures’ in Texas shooting response

A report into the fatal school shooting in Uvalde in Texas has found there were “multiple systemic failures” in the police response.

Nineteen students and two teachers were killed in the attack at Robb Elementary school – and although almost 400 police officers were at the scene – the report says they put their own safety ahead of the lives of children and staff, waiting more than an hour before the decision was taken to confront the gunman.
