Uvalde, TX – Recently-released bodycam footage captured the moment when an Uvalde school district police officer was held back by law enforcement as he tried to get to his dying wife during the mass shooting inside her Robb Elementary School classroom (video below).
Eva Mireles, 44, had contacted her husband, Uvalde Consolidated Independent Schools District Police Department (UCISDPD) Officer Ruben Ruiz, after she was shot as she attempted to shield her students from the gunman’s barrage of bullets inside her classroom on May 24, Texas Representative Joe Moody (D – El Paso) tweeted on July 13.
Mireles told her husband “that she’d been shot and was dying,” Moody said
Recently-released bodycam footage showed Officer Ruiz as he pushed his way to the front of a group of law enforcement officers standing in the hallway outside the classroom where the gunman had his wife and her fourth-grade class held hostage.
“Hey hey hey – Ruben,” one officer said as another officer put his hand on Officer Ruiz’s shoulder and pulled him back.
“She says she’s shot!” Officer Ruiz protested.
Additional officers then escorted him out of the building, the clip showed.
By the time police stormed the classroom and killed the 18-year-old gunman, he’d been inside the school gunning down victims for more than an hour.
Nineteen children and two adults were murdered in the shooting.
Mireles was among the victims.
