The school district at the center of the mass shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, has suspended its entire police force.
Following a review carried out in the Robb Elementary School massacre in which 21 people, including 19 children, were killed, the district announced that two police officers will go on “administrative leave” and that all department activities will be suspended.
The May shooting was the deadliest at a US school since 26 people were killed in the 2012 attack on Sandy Hook in Connecticut.
The Uvalde district police chief was fired in August due to the wavering response of hundreds of heavily armed law enforcement officers to the killings carried out by high school dropout Salvador Ramos.
And in an announcement Friday, Uvalde’s Consolidated Independent School District (CISD) admitted that “recent developments have revealed additional issues regarding departmental operations.”
