Uvalde school district held an active shooter drill in March with officers


As questions continue to swirl about law enforcement’s response to the active shooter situation that resulted in 21 people being killed inside a Texas elementary school, it has now been revealed that the school district and local police agencies participated in an active shooter drill just two months ago.

According to Fox News, the training had local police, school resource officers, and campus security participate in the training.

It also featured topics like, “Stop the killing,” and “Stop the dying.”

Photos from the March 21st training were posted to the school district’s Facebook page and show the district employees and officers playing different roles during an active shooter situation. One of the situations includes a hostage/barricaded situation.

The manual cited that after the 2018 Parkland School Shooting, the school resource officer received a lot of criticism for “staging” behind a concrete wall despite the shooter being in the building and moved from classroom to classroom.

The manual did not give specific answers on whether officers should go in and confront the shooter or not.

Earlier this week, Governor Greg Abbott blasted police for giving him bad information as it’s now been revealed that the shooter was inside the classroom for approximately 40-60 minutes before a border patrol agent used a room key from the principal to gain entry and kill the shooter.
