Texas Governor Greg Abbott Friday said law enforcement officers misled him about the Uvalde school massacre amid growing public anger against how authorities handled the situation as a gunman killed 19 students and two teachers in the carnage that lasted for more than an hour.
“I was misled. I am livid about what happened,” Abbott told reporters in Uvalde about the mayhem Tuesday when Salvador Ramos, 18, went on a rampage at Robb Elementary School before cops gunned him down.
“I was on this very stage two days ago and I was telling the public the information that had been told to me in the room a few yards behind where we are located right now,” the governor said. EFE
