Uvalde Police Chief Completed Active Shooter Training in December

Officials say Uvalde Schools Police Chief Peter Arredondo, who reportedly waited to confront the gunman at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, had completed an active shooter course in December.

According to NBC News, Arredondo had completed an eight-hour “Active Shooter Training Mandate” course on Dec. 17, 2021. Arredondo had also completed an active shooter course a year prior, on Aug. 25, 2020, the same year he became a police chief.

Steven McCraw, the head of the Texas Department of Public Safety, said that “it was the wrong decision” to not let 19 officers rush in as the 18-year-old gunman opened fire for at least an hour, killing 19 children and two adults.
