UVALDE, Texas – Over the last few days, custodial death reports have been published publicly in the case involving the gunman in the Robb Elementary School shooting that left 19 students and two teachers dead.

The reports, uploaded to the Texas Attorney General’s website in a records section, were from the Uvalde Police Department, Uvalde County Sheriff’s Office and Zavala County Sheriff’s Office, which were called in to assist with the response to the mass shooting on May 24.

The reports all contain similar information, except for the summary section.
