The mother who ran into Robb Elementary school during the shooting to save her two sons is saying she is now receiving threats from the authorities.
Angeli Rose Gomez told CBS that she was informed that if she keeps talking to the media about what happened that day, she could be charged with a probation violation for obstruction of justice.
Several people including Gomez publicly criticized the police response to the active shooter situation in Uvalde, Texas:
“Y’all are standing with snipers and y’all are far away, I got to go in there,” Gomez stated. Shortly after, she was “immediately placed in cuffs.” As soon as the handcuffs were removed, she immediately jumped a fence and sprinted into the school.
According to reports, authorities decided to remain outside of the school for at least 30 minutes as the shooting took place.
“They could have saved many more lives,” Gómez said. “They could have gone into the classroom, and maybe two or three would have been gone, but they could have saved the whole, more, the whole class. They could have done something — gone through the window, sniped him through the window. Something, but nothing was being done.”
19 children and two adults were killed in the shooting.
