Reports: Uvalde County sheriff knew about Robb shooting call, diverted to other scene half-mile away

UVALDE, TexasUvalde County Sheriff Ruben Nolasco knew about the calls for shots fired on campus the day of the Robb Elementary shooting in which 19 students and two teachers died on May 24 but diverted to a shooting reported less than a half-mile from the school, according to a CNN report.

Nolasco found a woman shot in the head — the shooter’s grandmother — who identified her grandson as her attacker.

Video showed the sheriff arrived at Robb Elementary by 11:49 a.m., 15 minutes after the gunman entered the school. CNN reports there was no mention of the Diaz Street shooting inside the school until 12:08 p.m.

After he arrived, Nolasco mentioned DPS was coming and that they needed to contain the scene and determine who was in charge, CNN reports.

But law enforcement did not enter the classroom for at least another hour.

Nolasco was asked by CNN last month whether he thought his response was adequate. He reportedly told CNN, “Yeah, I do.”
