Garland holds presser on DOJ’s Uvalde response report: Watch live

Attorney General Merrick Garland is slated to give remarks Thursday afternoon regarding the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Uvalde, Texas, response report.

A lack of preparation, communication and initiative led Texas law enforcement officers to bungle their response to a brutal 2022 school shooting, a new investigation from the Justice Department has found, as The Hill reported.

The investigation was launched in 2022 to answer a question that haunted the people of Uvalde, Texas — and the nation as a whole — since the gunman killed 19 students and two teachers at Robb Elementary School.

The event is scheduled for noon EST.
