WATCH: Texas Gov. Greg Abbott says he was ‘misled’ about police response to Uvalde school shooting

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott says he was ‘misled’ about the police response to the Uvalde school shooting and is ‘livid about what happened.’

Watch Abbott’s remarks in the player above.

“When I came out here on this stage and told the public what happened,” Abbott said,”it was a recitation of what people in that room told me, whether it be law enforcement officials or non law enforcement officials, whatever the case may be. And as everybody has learned, the information that I was given turned out in part to be inaccurate.”

In addition to the police’s slow response time to the classroom, authorities had initially said a school resource officer “engaged” the gunman outside.

But that account was corrected earlier Friday, saying the school resource officer was not on campus when the shooter arrived and missed him when he rushed back to school in response to a 911 call.

Abbott’s Friday appearance in Uvalde came as he skipped the National Rifle Association convention in Houston, where he instead deliver pre-recorded remarks that were shown to the audience minutes before his news conference began.
