Sen. Roland Gutierrez stated at a press conference that screams for help from students inside the school did not reach school district police Chief Pete Arredondo.

“I want to know who was receiving the 911 calls precisely,” Gutierrez said, adding that no single person or group was solely responsible for the slaughter. “Error occurred at all levels, including the legislative level. Greg Abbott is to fault for a lot of this.”

The Department of Public Safety said that officers didn’t break into the classroom because Arredondo felt the scene had shifted from an active shooting to a hostage crisis.
