Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steven C. McCraw is set to speak on the Uvalde school shooting in front the Texas Senate committee at 9 a.m. Tuesday after new information about law enforcement’s handling of the situation was uncovered Monday.

Watch the livestream here.

McCraw first released new details days after the May 24 mass shooting that killed 19 kids and two teachers, saying that the gunman was inside the school with an AR-style rifle. The information came after days of conflicting reports from local law enforcement. 

New reports from the Texas Tribune and Austin-American Statesman show police were in the building within minutes of the gunman’s arrival, but did not attempt to open any of the classroom doors to confront him.  

MySA will update this story as it develops.
