HOUSTON – Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick issued this statement today after the ALERRT Report on the law enforcement response to the attack on Robb Elementary School in Uvalde was released:
“ALERRT’s 26-page report outlining the attack on Robb Elementary School in complete detail was very difficult for me to read today as it will be for all Texans. This report is the first official report released to the public on the timeline of the events on that tragic day. There will be reports from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Texas Rangers, and District Attorney in the coming weeks and months.
“Those reports will include information based on hundreds of interviews from those on the scene that day. Every interview will be matched against other interviews if there are differences and matched to audio and video timeline evidence.
“The ALERRT report corroborates the testimony given by Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Director Steve McCraw before the Senate Special Committee to Protect All Texans several weeks ago. That public testimony and this official report clarify what actually happened during the attack. I urge Texans to read the report for themselves so they know the truth. In the Senate, we will continue to hold all of our hearings on this event and all issues in public.”
