Timeline of Uvalde school shooting events in Texas

Four minutes after Ramos entered the school, Escalon said, Uvalde police and police with the school district “are inside, making entry.”

“They hear gunfire. They take rounds. They move back, get cover, ”Escalon said. “And during that time, they approach where the suspect is at.”

Ramos quickly made his way to a fourth-grade classroom, officials said. Olivarez told CNN that Ramos “barricaded himself by locking the door and just started shooting children and teachers that were inside that classroom.”

“Officers are there, the initial officers,” Escalon said Thursday. But they did not enter the classroom because they were under gunfire, he said. Ramos fired most of his shots early on, Escalon said, saying he could not immediately offer a precise number.
