Victor Escalon, of the Texas Department of Public Safety was grilled by reporters on Thursday afternoon over new information indicating authorities waited an hour before entering the classroom where the Uvalde massacre shooter had barricaded himself inside with children.

As the press conference became increasingly tense, one reporter asked about reports “that some parents were asking to borrow police armor so they could make a counterassault on the school?”

“I have heard that information. But we have not verified that yet,” Escalon responded.
