Uvalde Shooting Video Unedited: What 77-Minute Hallway Camera Reveals

New footage of the shooting and surrounding events at the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, has been released.

The Austin American Statesman released an 82-minute video on its YouTube Channel on Tuesday, showing multiple angles from the school shooting on May 24. It also released a condensed version of the longer video and highlighted some of the key moments.

The release of the video, which was condemned by local authorities, has prompted new outrage over what many see as a slow police response to the massacre in the small Texas community.

The longer video goes from the moment the gunman arrives at the school up to the point where he is shot and killed by police. It also shows the 77 minutes that authorities were together in the hallway while the gunman remained in the school.

The video began by showing outside camera footage of the vehicle the gunman was driving that he crashed near the school.

After bystanders attempted to check on the shooter, he fired his gun in their direction, forcing them to flee.

The video then played the audio of a teacher speaking from inside the school as she called 911, having heard gunshots.

At this point, the gunman began shooting at the school from the parking lot as he walked closer to the building.

The Austin American Statesman video briefly showed mobile phone footage of the gunman walking into the school before it cuts to a hallway camera in the building.

At around 11:33 a.m. the gunman can be seen walking down the hallway before briefly checking a corner while holding body armor and an AR-15 type weapon.

The hallway camera also captures a child exiting the bathroom and walking into the hallway to see the back of the gunman.

The gunman then begins opening fire, which startles the child, who runs back in the direction he came.

The video notes that the child has been blurred to have his identity hidden and that the sounds of children screaming has been edited out.

Shots can then be heard for the next two minutes while a video prompt repeatedly adds that the sound of children screaming has been edited out.

Three minutes after the gunman arrived, armed police enter the building. Some of the officers move quickly down the hallway towards the classroom where the gunshots are thought to be coming from.

After more shots are fired by the gunman, the police that were further down the corridor retreat back up the hallway.

After the retreat by the police at around 11:37 a.m., multiple branches of law enforcement can be seen entering the building congregating at the top of the hallway.

This included the Uvalde Police Department, Uvalde County Sheriff's Department, Texas Department of Public Safety, Texas Ranges, U.S. Border Patrol and the U.S. Marshals Service.

During this time many walk back and forth in the hallway with some moving out of the hallway camera's frame of reference and then reappearing.

It is not clear what the officers are discussing at this time as the audio is unclear.

From 12:04 p.m., body camera footage of an officer can be seen and shows the wearer about to enter the school.

The armed officer, with the body camera, walks towards the officers set up behind protective shields crouching at the hallway the shooter walked down.

He eventually joins the officers at the main hallway after briefly pausing to take cover with other officers along the way.

The officer wearing the body camera exits the school around 12:12 p.m. and begins speaking with officers stood outside the school.

Authorities also asked for keys to one of the classrooms that investigators discovered was unlocked later, according to a Austin American Statesman report.

Police also brought tear gas and gas masks into the building as well as a sledgehammer and continued to wait in the hallway, according to the report.

While police remained set up with their guns pointed down the hallway, the person wearing the body cam footage walked around the outside of the building with other officers. At 12:17 p.m. they entered the building again and exited repeatedly for the next few minutes.

At around 12:21 p.m. multiple police begin moving further down the hallway, some while carrying protective shields.

From this point up until 12:49 p.m. multiple officers can be seen walking up and down the hallway while speaking to one another.

During this time, at 12:30 p.m., an officer can be seen using one of the hallway hand sanitizer dispensers before returning to cover.

At 12:50 p.m. more shots are fired as authorities breach the classroom and kill the gunman.

Moments after the shooting officers at the top of the hallway attempt to walk towards the classrooms but are told to keep back while the other officers ,already by the classroom, deal with the situation.

Steven McCraw, director of the state's Public Safety Department, released a statement criticizing the video's release. He said it would have been better if the families had a chance to see it first, as planned by state Representative Dustin Burrows, who is leading a legislative investigation into the shooting.

In a statement released to Newsweek, Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin said "it is unbelievable that this video was posted as part of a news story with images and audio of the violence of this incident without consideration for the families involved.

"I continue to stand behind my statements that full transparency and consideration for the families remains the priority as it relates to this incident," he said.
