Brian Higgins ( about Ron Nelson ) : "The initial response from officers was very good. They were there in a timely fashion, and that's the goal, to get to the shooter as quickly as possible. And they didn't hesitate on their movement down the hallway. They went right to the sound of gunfire and almost immediately engaged [with] the shooter. So, their initial response was very good. NEWSY'S ROB NELSON: I believe what I heard yesterday was that the first officers arrived there within three minutes of the shooter being there. Just to be clear — an assault weapon can do a lot of damage in three minutes. HIGGINS: It sure can. Every round that is fired can take a life. NELSON: Now, about 45 minutes into the surveillance video, more officers by that point have arrived on the scene — a lot more — still though, they have not gotten into the classroom. ... At this point, officers have shields and guns pointed toward the direction of the classroom, but as we can see in the video, they're still at the opposite end of the hallway from where those kids were under attack. Is this, overall, the right progression in terms of the response? HIGGINS: So, the weapon that's being used by the shooter is a high-powered rifle and it will go through the average officer's bullet-resistant material. So the officers are considering that round. But, typically, in situations like this — whether it's an active shooter or a barricade — the officers who would enter if a shooting began are typically closer to the room, what we refer to as " External link

NEWSY'S ROB NELSON: I believe what I heard yesterday was that the first officers arrived there within three minutes of the shooter being there. Just to be clear — an assault weapon can do a lot of damage in three minutes. HIGGINS: It sure can. Every round that is fired can take a life.

At this point, officers have shields and guns pointed toward the direction of the classroom, but as we can see in the video, they're still at the opposite end of the hallway from where those kids were under attack. Is this, overall, the right progression in terms of the response? HIGGINS: So, the weapon that's being used by the shooter is a high-powered rifle and it will go through the average officer's bullet-resistant material. So the officers are considering that round. But, typically, in situations like this — whether it's an active shooter or a barricade — the officers who would enter if a shooting began are typically closer to the room, what we refer to as " External link
