Police and Texas governor Abbott originally said a school police resource officer was at the school and "engaged" the suspect when he crashed his car upon arriving near the school which turned out to be a lie. https://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/police-face-questions-delays-storming-texas-school-84992160

Local police officers arrived 12 minutes to the school after they been called about a shooting and waited an additional 4 minutes before entering the building while the gunman was inside barricaded in the classroom, while parents and women outside urged the cops to go inside the building. https://www.cnn.com/videos/us/2022/05/26/uvalde-texas-school-shooting-parents-police-frustration-ath-vpx.cnn

The police continued to wait outside until border patrol tactical team arrived and negotiators while the gunman was still inside the building and gunshots going off. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nbcnews.com/news/amp/rcna30609

The whole time lapsed was over a hour when the initial shooting happened til the border patrol team arrived, entered the classroom and put the demon to death.

There was a report of a mother who was acting out while yelling at the cops to go in the school and was handcuffed; manage to convinced another cop to take the cuffs off her, when the cops weren't looking ran and jumped a fence and went in the school to rescue her kids and bring them out, yet several police officers (dozens) with body armor and guns were busy waiting for more help to arrive while gunshots going off. Unacceptable in my opinion.

Correction: Cops didn't arrive to the crash til 12 minutes after it happened and didn't initially enter the school building during the shooting after 4 minutes of shots fired, then another 45 minutes til a whole hour passed by didn't enter to engage the shooter with several cops already outside waiting for border patrol tactical unit to arrive on scene while gunshots still going off in the building.
