911 calls, new details of ’77 gut-wrenching min’ of children trapped in Uvalde school: ‘Child is advising he is in the room’

Terrified children run from their school during a gunman’s rampage as a 911 dispatcher talks to a child trapped in the classroom with the gunman in a chilling new video from last week’s massacre in Uvalde, Texas. the latest insight into the day that shocked America.

In excerpts from the video obtained by ABC News that aired on Monday’s edition of “Good Morning America,” children flee Robb Elementary School where 19 young kids and two teachers were methodically slaughtered by 18-year-old Salvadore Ramos.

Police officers who responded to the scene broke windows as they tried to evacuate students after the gunman opened fire. Also captured in the footage was the dispatcher’s audio of a phone call to law enforcement from a child who was trapped in the classroom that Ramos had entered.

“…advise we do have a child on the line,” the dispatcher said, “Room 12, are we able to… is anybody inside of the building at this…?”

“2-1, child is advising he is in the room, full of victims. Full of victims at this moment.”

“She identified herself and whispered that she’s in room 112,” said a visibly shaken Col. Steven McCraw, Director of the Texas Department of Public Safety as he described a call from a student who was also trapped inside the classroom with the shooter. ‘At 12:10pm she called back in room 12 advised there are multiple dead, again at 12:16pm she called back and said there was 8 to 9 students alive,’ according to ABC News.

The video details the “77 gut-wrenching minutes that the gunman was inside the school before law enforcement breached the locked door with a key and killed the shooter,” ABC News reported. “The investigation revealing the school district police chief wrongly believed the situation was no longer an active shooter but instead a barricaded subject and had ordered tactical teams not to enter the classroom.”

“It was a wrong decision. Period. There was no excuse for that,” Col. McCraw said.

Sources told ABC News that eventually federal officers “defied local authorities, going in and fatally shooting the gunman.”

A 9-year-old survivor whose cousin was murdered by the gunman described his experience to “Good Morning America,” recalling how teacher Elsa Abala who was shot twice survived by playing dead.

“She ran to the door quickly, she got her key, she broke the key and then she was running cause she got shot, and then she just like dropped on the floor and she was like playing dead,” said Daniel Garza.

He recalled the moment that he first saw Ramos, “He’s like staring at like people through a little window,” Garza said. “He was just like standing there with his gun like tapping on like the window.”

On Sunday, as he paid a visit to Uvalde to meet with the victims’ families, President Joe Biden was faced with calls to “do something” from the crowd.

Also on Sunday, the Justice Department announced that it will be conducting a “Critical Incident Review” of the Uvalde police response to the shooting.

According to a statement from DOJ spokesman Anthony Coley, “At the request of Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin, the U.S. Department of Justice will conduct a Critical Incident Review of the law enforcement response to the mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas, on May 24.”

“The goal of the review is to provide an independent account of law enforcement actions and responses that day, and to identify lessons learned and best practices to help first responders prepare for and respond to active shooter events. The review will be conducted with the Department’s Office of Community Oriented Policing,” the statement reads. “As with prior Justice Department after-action reviews of mass shootings and other critical incidents, this assessment will be fair, transparent, and independent. The Justice Department will publish a report with its findings at the conclusion of its review.”
