Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steven McCraw said Friday, when asked why police at Robb Elementary School didn’t engage the shooter sooner, said “the on-scene commander at the time believed that it had transitioned from an active shooter to a barricaded subject.”

“A decision was made on the scene – I wasn’t there — that this was a barricaded subject situation, there was time to retrieve the keys and wait for a tactical team with the equipment to go ahead and breach the door and take on the subject,” he continued. “At that point, that was the decision, that was the thought process.”

The article goes on to state the following:

McCraw later said “from the benefit of hindsight from where I am sitting now, that of course it was not the right decision, it was a wrong decision, very, there was no excuse for that.”

McCraw explained how the attack began, and revealed why the gunman was able to so easily enter the building – because a teacher had propped the door open and apparently forgot to close it:

Unfortunately, the school resource officer was not at the school at the time Ramos began his attack, but heard on a 911 call that there was a man with a gun at the school and sped toward the school.

The officer then missed seeing the shooter while he was crouched behind a vehicle, and drove right past him. WATCH:

At 11:33, Ramos began shooting at classroom #111 or #112, firing over 100 rounds at that time.

McCraw confirmed that Border Patrol agents, along with other law enforcement, were told to hold back from engaging the gunman. The on-scene commander initially believed it was a barricaded subject situation, and “that not kids were at risk.”

“From the benefit of hind sight where I’m sitting now, of course it was not the right decision. It was the wrong decision. Period. There’s no excuse for that, but again, I wasn’t there. But from what we know, we believe there should have been an entry as soon as you can,” he said.

“When there’s an active shooter, the rules change,” he explained, noting that they should have barged into the school.

Multiple 911 calls were made from the school:

A reporter asked, “What is on your heart? How are you doing? You’ve been shaking the whole time you’re up here.”

Visibly emotional, he responded, “Thanks a lot, but forget about how I’m doing, what about the parents of those children, how they’re doing. Forget about me, or our officers. We take an oath to uphold the law and protect people.”


McGraw revealed chilling new details investigators have discovered about social media messages posted by Ramos prior to the shooting:

Ramos asked his sister in September of 2021 to help him buy a gun, but she refused.

On Feb. 28, 2022, in an Instagram group chat, it was discussed of Ramos being a “school shooter.”

On March 1, 2022, in an Instagram group chat with four people, he discussed buying a gun.

On March 3, 2022, in another 4-person chat, someone said, “word on the street is you’re buying a gun.”

Ramos replied, “Just bought something. RN.”

On March 14, in an Instagram post, Ramos wrote, “10 more days.”  (Note, it is unclear if McCraw misspoke, and actually meant May 14, as that would have been 10 days prior to the day of the massacre.)

Another person asked Ramos in that chat, “Are you going to shoot up a school or something?”

Ramos replied, “No, and stop asking dumb questions. You’ll see.”

  1. So, now we have a cowardly police force in the USA….because they are afraid of being charged??? They were too dumb not to quit??? WTF???

  2. This was a huge shit show. It’s sad but true. I will support LE and all the great work LEO’s do but this was a mess from the beginning. Honestly, I don’t care about blame. The absolute most important thing is a solid after action report to determine the shortcomings that challenged the response. It’s absolutely essential to responders of future incidents.

  3. This is a devastating situation & tragedy for everyone. Even outsiders. As a mother & grandmother, I’m shaken to the core. We send our babies to school, never thinking they’ll be shot down & bleed to their death. Basically, they died with fear. There were so many first responders on the scene that now need mental help too. The door left opened after seeing the car wreck should have scared that teacher enough to lock it but it wasn’t the case for whatever reason. The School District will have to deal with that plus no resource officer on that campus. O boy! The doors should have buzzers to get inside once shut. I say metal detectors & something like we have in airports should he installed in every school & hallway monitors on every floor & every exit with special training. We send all our money outside the U.S. & let
    our homeless lay helpless. We need mental health facilities here in the each county big or small. Joe Biden needs to step it up about 25 notches & take care of mental illness instead of allowing invaders to get our money & use our resources. This is a National Disaster here at home. This looked like a large Hispanic community so most likely there is not enough money or resources for them. It is the saddest state of affairs. Stop sending our money to Ukraine & giving to the outsiders. Take Care of our Citizens Mr. President!!! Build Mental Health facilities.

  4. Gee, our dog parks have double doors for security. Put a cage with a second lockable gate at every entrance at the schools. Even if a teacher propped open a door the entrance would still be secure. Figure out a way to make it easier to use exit only doors at schools when needed in an emergency if that isn’t already a building code requirement.

  5. I can’t believe this has happened again !! You’re the police, storm that school or whatever you’re at, DO NOT EVER WAIT ! It sounds like whoever was in charge needs to be fired. If you don’t have the guts to be a policeman, then get another job where lives aren’t at stake !! Thank GOD for the Border Patrol agent who didn’t wait to go in ! Looks like you should have learned from the other incident.

  6. Our schools have got to get it together and get funding for better security! These little mistakes should not have happened. Their should be more than one officer at that school at ALL TIMES! They need to be in shape and trained for this kind of event.

  7. This police force should have learned from the other incident where the police waited to go in. Maybe whoever decided this needs to work somewhere else.

  8. What kids already shot and bleeding to death and you decide since they are already shot and bleeding to death to waiy an hour to try and save their lives. Absolutely SHAMEFUL!!! WHAT A NUT. Nobody over ruled is stupidity.

  9. Just like our government many are too old to make rational decisions
    We need retirement and age restrictions when it comes to law enforcement and government
    Nothing against the elderly but look at our country now one bad decision after the other
    We are supposed to protect our children at all costs
