The report is expected to focus on the facts of the attack, a chronological order of events, a timeline, a law enforcement manifesto and details about the gunman, a source previously told CNN. It is expected to clarify conflicting accounts of what happened, include verbatim citations from affidavits and show that the failure of law enforcement that day was far greater than one person or agency, a source said.

Members of the Texas Department of Public Safety, the police chief and officers of the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District, the district superintendent, the school principal, a teacher and supervisory staff are among those who testified before the committee behind closed doors — with about 40 people testifying , according to one source.

Republican State Representative Dustin Burrows, the committee chair, said last month that the group would “make every effort” to provide facts and answers about what happened “leading up to, during and in the wake of this tragedy.”
The victims’ families are expected to receive the report and surveillance video in the hallway, without audio, of the law enforcement response on Sunday morning, so that they have a chance to review it before meeting with members of the police. commission of inquiry. The surveillance footage was leaked and published Tuesday by the Austin American-Statesman newspaper, sparking outrage from both local officials and families who said they were caught off guard and disrespected by the unexpected release.
Here’s what we know about the expected report
In a statement after the video was published by the paper, Burrows said that while he was pleased that some of the video had been made public, he was “also disappointed with the families of the victims and the Uvalde community’s requests to have the video first view and not have certain images and audio of the violence, were not reached.”

The investigation committee’s report and video are expected to be released to the public simultaneously with the family meeting on Sunday. A press conference is scheduled for Sunday afternoon at which members of the press can ask questions to the committee. CNN will read the report as soon as it is made public and will update this evolving story.

The report comes almost eight weeks after an 18-year-old gunman walked into Robb Elementary and started shooting into a classroom, killing 19 children and two teachers. Important questions about the police’s response to the shooting have remained unanswered ever since. Chief among them: why authorities waited more than an hour in the school hallway before confronting and killing the gunman, a move that law enforcement experts say may have cost lives.
DPS Director Colonel Steven McCraw has condemned law enforcement’s response to the attack, calling it an “abject failure” in a hearing before a Texas Senate committee last month and blaming the on-site commander, who was charged by the state’s chief executive officer. state authorities was identified as Police Chief Pedro “Pete” Arredondo.

“The only thing that prevented a corridor of dedicated officers from entering rooms 111 and 112 was the commander on site, who decided to put the lives of officers over the lives of children,” McCraw said at the time.

But Arredondo, who had been placed on administrative leave by the school district, told the Texas Tribune last month that he did not consider himself the incident commander and assumed another official was in control of the larger response. “He took on the role of a primary care provider,” the newspaper wrote of the chief.
Arredondo testified behind closed doors in Austin in June before the House Investigation Committee.
