Uvalde police were ‘scrambling’ to find tool to open door: Rep. Gonzales
Rep. Tony Gonzales, R-Texas, says a wounded officer in the Uvalde school shooting reported that the door only opened outward and police were ‘scrambling, looking’ for the correct tool.
REP. TONY GONZALES: I spoke directly to one of the initial officers that engaged the situation. And he took fire, he got wounded, and what they were telling me, because I’m asking, ‘Hey, why didn’t you get in sooner? Walk me through that.’ And he goes, ‘Look, here’s the deal, Tony. It was a steel door and it was locked. And it would go outward, not inward. Meaning I’d have to pry it open with a can.’ He goes, ‘We didn’t have those kind of tools. We were scrambling, looking for it.’
There was actually a game warden that had a crowbar and a hammer that they ended up going, eventually, they find a key. But what I’m getting at is these folks wanted to get in there as fast as they possibly could. These were their children. These were their neighbors.
