The gunman who killed 19 children and two teachers crossed the grounds of the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, without being confronted and entered the building through an unlocked door, authorities say, offering a new account of the events that preceded the massacre.
Police confirmed the gunman was barricaded inside a classroom at Robb Elementary School for an hour before a tactical team finally breached the room and fatally shot him.
Parents outside implored officers to storm the building.

“Clearly, we need to make it far easier to confine the violent and mentally deranged into mental institutions,” Mr Trump said in a speech at the convention, in Houston, of the National Rifle Association, a gun rights advocacy group.
