Uvalde school police chief knew victims were alive inside classroom as he waited to confront gunman: report | Fox News

Pete Arredondo, the Uvalde school police chief who assumed the role of incident commander at the scene, decided to clear the rest of the school instead of immediately confronting the gunman. 

“People are going to ask why we’re taking so long,” a man who investigators believe is Arredondo told other officers at the scene, according to a transcript of body camera footage reviewed by the Times.
