A lawyer for an unidentified Robb Elementary employee, described as a teacher, claims the door was not left open before last week’s deadly school shooting.
Attorney Dan Flanery says the employee did prop open the door, but kicked away the rock used to prop it open when she saw the gunman who eventually gained access to the school and killed 19 students and two teachers.
“She saw the wreck,” Flanary said. “She ran back inside to get her phone to report the accident. She came back out while on the phone with 911. The men at the funeral home yelled, ‘He has a gun!’ She saw him jump the fence, and he had a gun so she ran back inside.
“She kicked the rock away when she went back in. She remembers pulling the door closed while telling 911 that he was shooting. She thought the door would lock because that door is always supposed to be locked.”
Since the shooting last week, law enforcement officials have made at least a dozen changes to the timeline of the attack.
On Friday, Director of Texas Department of Public Safety Steven McCraw said that security footage showed a teacher had propped open the back door.
The pro-gun, anti-door Senator from Texas said that the problem isn’t that there are too many guns, but that there are too many doors.
