11:29 am
he was apparently firing through the wall at the police officers. he had a very powerful weapon with rounds that was able of cutting through the wall. the police was taking fire outside of that classroom and could not see into the classroom. that may be one reason why they was not firing back. they didn't know at that point where the children was and the teachers and it was very difficult for them. >> thank you so much for being here today. my goal today on this conference, this press conference is to give you a snapshot where we're at snapshot of where we are today. this incident happened on tuesday, may 24 so there is a lot of information and a lot of moving parts. a lot of people are involved in this investigation.
