The Department of Justice will start its investigation into if and how local police failed to stop or slow the massacre at Robb Elementary School last week.
Sources said the DOJ will do itself into the case at the request of Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin.
The deadly shooting cost the lives of 19 fourth-grade students and two teachers due to the delayed action from the police.
“The goal of the review is to provide an independent account of law enforcement actions and responses that day and identify lessons learned and best practices to help first responders prepare for and respond to active shooter events,” the DOJ said.
DOJ vowed to release its findings to the public.
