just go by. well, they do. but they time almost as his sister. but with gun, she flatly refuse doesn't september. 21. why would some of these and get to them? yeah. instagram before group it was discussed that ramos being a school shooter. that was on february 28th 2022. one march first 2022. there's an instagram he had with 4 people. the chat. we discussed in buying a gun. when march 3rd 2022. foreperson checked. what patients word on the street. you're buying a gun. a supply just bought something.
on march 14. this a graham posting? well, the subject. goat asians, 10 more days. we're going to shoot up school or something. the subject replied, no. and stop asking dumb questions and you'll see. well, you any questions. and read stay as long as we can get answers. may those questions we can't. if i can answer that, we don't know definitively right now simply say continues to be a
investigation was, you know, literally, you know, certainly over hundreds of interviews have been conducted. we'll continue to be conducted and there's thousands of leads that be pursued, not not consecutively concurrently. and thanks to we're federal and local partners. do want to mention behind me we've got the fbi special char. we also have an ats special agent charge or they sacked. and of course, with texas rangers, any specifics that i have covered. we might need. their were gone. want to cover one thing quickly, though, before good questions. that's so the questions that we received. we will 40 were saved. and we're lowe's is is going around now that there's. that the in fact, the subject and then for that to rest. well, the texas rangers, local police back in. 20,018. that's not the case. it was not one of the
individuals. in fact. found no links association relationships. that investigation. it was a threat. it was back in 2018. 2 goals work charge. with attempted conspiracy to commit capital murder. there's no question that we thought able to us. district attorney agree that these people, one, 31, 14 years old was a threat to uvalde. and it was a discussion at that time. even the senior year one was 14 years old. we could make a 0. 22. it was not the subject. thing a little tail of the field say we're done. we have 20, but you with us is going to translate into spanish. ok, what the answers to the
know, the austin commander considering a barricaded subject in the first time in the no child more children at risk. obviously, obviously, you know, based upon the information we have the work children in the classroom that were at risk. and it was, in fact, still an active shooter situation and not a very good stuff. what can simply this?
20 minute gap? and if the 9-1-1 operators were aware that that children will live in the classroom, why were officers notified of that? and if that's the case, when that he take action, that's the question. in go back to the answer right now is that that it was considered okay. the decision was made on the same. wasn't there. with the same point in time. you know, decision was made that this is a barricaded subject. situation that was time. we treat the and wait for tat will team with the equipment. weight and breach the normal and take on the subject of that point. that was the decision that was the process. that particular point in time.
it was 19, like i said, we're talking officers and their backers, plenty of officers do whatever needed to be done with one exception is that the the incident commander inside believe they need more equipment and more officers into a packed the breach. at that point. that's what worked at was requested. well, the same as soon as they were there, they executed a search, least a dynamic entry in the course >> the benefit of hindsight all right. i've got that to get a firm that had the benefit of hindsight warm sitting now. >> that, of course, not the right on variant. there's no
no excuse for that. but again, i wasn't there, but i'm just telling you from what we know. we believe there should have been in it for you that as soon as you can there's an active shooter, the rules change. it's no longer ok, there's no longer barricaded something you don't have you don't worry about matter. printers. and by the way, texas in braces, active shooter, training, active shooter certification. and that that that doctrine requires office. we don't care what agents you from. you don't have to have a leader on the scene. every officer lines up stacks up those and find where those rounds are being fired at and keep shooting until the subject has well
after the last to use the debit card. first, your point, it's very expensive. a debit card, like what court? i mean, he had money in bank. so why and how it's being looked at right now? not a this hundreds of more 1000 more leads are being looked at right now because we haven't answered all the questions. we haven't gotten to the wind. okay. we know the individual was also into cyber game in that regard and group gaming. and that was so got a lot of lot of questions are out there. we're seeking answers, but we've got an obligation continue to update you what we find something the work that the
border patrol. agent support that cage is the work building that lineup department 19 that talked about and when the entry came with team that went in. but i can tell you that they were told just as likely as any other officer was told and others even command staff that came on board is that that the it's commander at the time was the believe that the you know that that in fact was a barricaded subject. with time. there was no kids a rest. i wish he was what you want because it there's no question and i'll say this right now. but out where these there's copycats, we've and we
need the public. what we did back in 2018, that was a public. okay. they came forward and we've got 2 people are about to shoot up a school or plan to sue the school. it does imply parent on the public when you get something just doesn't discuss guys sound like he's in. it may be. and but he just because how possible that he may the intended to do. as i read the time of the timeline based upon that as of yet. so, you know, we need we need everyone. we have a threat to life like that. the take it seriously and report it because ultimately this is travis is tracking what you tell the 19 of the parents of 19 kids were the families of 2. and the like said before that. first of all, when it
comes to an active shooter is you don't have to wait years. plain and simple. got to get up what i know now. okay. absolutely. it was an active shooter because you can transition. keep in mind the dock from jay back to shooters. you can transition from alert active shooter situation to a barricaded subject for a barricade with hostage subject. but but shooting continues, you have any reason to believe that there's individuals alive and there you've got an obligation move back to an active shooter last year. and that means everybody, everybody at the door. department's lucky number one be isd. he's got, you know, they they limit officers. only what is we've
got 6. you know, the end of it consulted in a school district as 6 officers and they didn't have one posted at that location and someone said it. would you tell the parents who maybe, you know, you got line? is it and or someone talked about when there's kids in the world. why was because it was believe, like i said time. that the subject was stationary barricaded was no risk to other children. right. respect for more on set right now. clearly it was kids in the room clearly, okay. there are risks oh, by the way, even when h go back to shooting, there may be kids that are injured, ok? the shot injured. it is important for life saving purposes to me to get there render >> and we are watching a live press conference underway right now in uvalde, texas, where you can see law enforcement officials updating the public and the parents of
the 19 children in the 2 teachers who were killed updating us on the situation. the timeline that led up to the gunman entering the school opening fire and then ultimately be killed by responding police. upwards of an hour after it all began. a lot of criticism out of this morning on how police handle the situation there. we can see efforts to try and explain the sequence of events will continue following the latest continue following the latest there from uvalde texas. you know folgers as a homebrew... but let's hear it for our hometown. one, two, ready, play. ♪ no, no, no, no, no, no, not me! ♪ allow us to reintroduce ourselves, folgers.
