The police response to the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas that killed 19 students and two teachers was an “abject failure,” Texas’ public safety director said Tuesday.

Col. Steve McCraw testified that the Uvalde school district’s chief of police prioritized his officers’ safety over that of the kids when a gunman wielding a semi-automatic rifle opened fire inside Robb Elementary School on May 24.

“It has been reported that he didn’t have a radio with him,” McCraw said Tuesday of Chief Pete Arredondo. “That’s true. He did not.”
