Texas law enforcement officers have recently revealed that they exercised caution in their response to the tragic shooting that occurred on Tuesday, Your Content has learned.

According to Texas DPT Lt. Chris Olivarez, the officers hesitated to immediately confront the shooter, Salvador Ramos, due to concerns for their own safety.

Lt. Olivarez further implied that the decision to keep the gunman confined within the classroom where the devastating attack took place was a tactical move intended to prevent further harm.

Reports indicate that the assailant barricaded himself inside the classroom, with law enforcement sources suggesting that a key was required for entry.

Consequently, the officers found themselves unable to intervene for approximately an hour, leaving the victims vulnerable and, tragically, resulting in some succumbing to their injuries.

Medical professionals have emphasized that rapid medical attention is crucial for gunshot wound victims, as the leading cause of death in such cases is often severe bleeding, which can occur within just five minutes.

The repercussions of this cautious approach have been severe, with at least two of the 19 children who lost their lives tragically passing away on their way to the hospital, an hour after sustaining gunshot wounds.

School resource officers and police experts have condemned the decision, labeling it as “disgusting” and asserting that alternative strategies should have been employed to prevent the loss of innocent lives.

It is important to note that the above information is based on statements from law enforcement officers and experts, without adding any personal opinions or biases, according to NewsFeeds.
