Residents of Uvalde, Texas, and their supporters are expressing fury at the local police chief after state officials said he was no longer cooperating with their probe into last week’s school shooting.
Pete Arredondo, head of the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District (CISD) Police, has been fiercely criticized by state officials, the media, and grieving parents for failing to send his officers into Robb Elementary School when it was attacked last week.
Arredondo believed that the 18-year-old gunman, Salvador Rolando Ramos, was barricaded alone inside the building, and waited over an hour before breaching the classrooms – where 19 children and two teachers had been killed.

Uvalde local Juan Torres, a U.S. Army veteran who was visibly upset with reports coming out about the police response, told the AP this week that he knew Arredondo from high school.
‘You sign up to respond to those kinds of situations,’ said Torres. ‘If you are scared, then don’t be a police officer. Go flip burgers.’
Others took to Facebook to express their frustration. ‘What would he do if the call said officers down,’ asked Donald Haga.
