The shooting at Uvalde Memorial Park has raised more concerns on social media about how quickly information is shared in a critical incident. KSAT's RJ Marquez is in Uvalde and talks about how police are responding to the criticism.

According to police, the 16-year-old suspect was taken to a juvenile detention facility in Del Rio.

The shooting happened around 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the park, located at 401 E. Main Street, about two miles from Robb Elementary School.

Authorities believe the incident involved rival gangs and stemmed from a fight.

The shooting also prompted an evacuation for the Uvalde Together Resiliency Center out of precaution, but all staff were deemed safe and accounted for.

The Texas Dept. of Public Safety is assisting Uvalde PD and the sheriff’s office in the shooting investigation, which is ongoing. We’ll bring more updates as they become available.
