Seventy-seven minutes of video footage assembled from the massacre at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, reveals the real-time assault after a gunman violently crashed a truck across the street then entered the school unimpeded, killing 19 children and two teachers, while law enforcement spent a painstaking hour waiting in the hallway as shots can be heard inside a classrrom.
A four-minute video assembled from footage obtained by the Austin American Statesman and KVUE-TV opens with surveillance footage from outside the school, as the gunman crashes a truck before firing three shots at two men on the street on 24 May.
The video also includes audio from a teacher on a 911 call saying “I cannot see him” and “the kids are running” before shots can be heard firing towards the school. The teacher yells out “get down” and get in your rooms”.
Footage from inside the school, after the gunman enters at 11.33am, reveals him pacing the hallway with a high-powered rifle. He releases his grip from the rifle with his left hand and brushes his hair aside.
A student on the other end of the hallway peers around a corner as the gunman walks down the hall. Seconds later, he unleashes a burst of gunfire into a classroom.
He fires his AR-15 rifle for two and a half minutes, according to the video. Law enforcement reported more than 100 rounds were fired.
