The mayor of Uvalde, Don McLaughlin reported that the school where the largest massacre in the state of Texas took place, in which 19 children and two teachers lost their lives, will be demolished while the relatives of the victims demand answers after the shooting.


Robb Elementary School in Uvalde experienced one of the worst moments in the history of the Texas state. Salvador Ramos, an 18-year-old boy entered the study center and opened fire on defenseless children in a classroom.

For this reason the mayor decided to demolish the school of the shooting in Uvalde

The date of the demolition was not specified by Mayor McLaughlin. What is public knowledge is that the anger and frustration of the residents of Uvalde is growing. It was recently learned that the police waited more than an hour to confront the attacker, BBC Mundo wrote.

“It is my understanding, and I had this discussion with the superintendent, that the school will be demolished. You can’t ask a child or a teacher to go back to that school,” McLaughlin explained.

Robb Elementary School has almost 600 students divided into second, third, and fourth grades.

The proposal to demolish the site of the tragedy was supported by President Joe Biden, who also suggested this action, according to statements last month by state senator Roland Gutiérrez to local media.

The study house will not be the first to be demolished after a shooting. Notably, Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, was destroyed after 20 6- and 7-year-old students and six staff members were shot in 2012.

Soon after, a new school was built on the same land and retains the same name.

The police took an hour to act.

On the other hand, the head of Texas public safety, Steven McCraw, reported on Tuesday, June 21, that during the shooting there were enough agents near the school to stop the attacker three minutes after he entered the building, being able to stop the massacre at time or not let it be of such magnitude.

The police waited more than an hour outside the classrooms before entering, even though they had armored shields and weapons more powerful than the attacker’s.

“It was an abject failure,” that is how McCraw cataloged the police response at a hearing in the state Senate and accused the commander of putting the lives of the agents above that of the children who died that day.

In turn, the shooting in Texas sparked a new national debate about gun regulations in the United States. (YO)
