Since the tragedy of the Uwalde (Texas), there has been criticism of the police for taking more than an hour to neutralize the shooter. 19 students and two teachers were killed at Rob Elementary School.

McGrath revealed details of a series of emergency calls from two classrooms where the shooter had detained himself, including a child who called police for help. The officer explained that after the initial attack, the commander at the scene believed that only 18-year-old Salvador Ramos was inside and that there were no survivors.
