After refusing to testify in the Robb Elementary School shooting investigation so far, Texas House officials are now calling Uvalde County Sheriff Ruben Nolasco to the stand.
State Rep. Dustin Borrows, chairman of the committee, released a statement Wednesday saying they’ve been “forced to send a notice of deposition” to Nolasco and hopes he’ll join the 19 other law enforcement members in giving their testimonies.
Per the notice, if Nolasco complies, he is scheduled to testify the afternoon of July 11. It’s unclear what happens if Nolasco doesn’t appear to testify.
On Wednesday, a report was released by the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training Center that shared new details about the May 24 shooting that left 21 dead, including several missed opportunities for law enforcement to “engage or stop the gunman” before he went into the school, the Texas Tribune said.
The most significant new detail brought to light in the report was the lack of response from an officer to shoot the gunman.
