The facilities of Robb Elementary School in the city of Uvalde, Texas, where a shooting took place on May 24 that killed 21 people, will be demolished, announced its mayor, Don McLaughlin, according to local media.
The mayor was visibly frustrated with the constantly changing information published about what happened the day 19 children and two teachers were shot to death at the school.
McLaughlin sharply criticized the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) and its leader, Colonel Steven McCraw.
The Texas Rangers, a DPS agency, are leading the investigation into the shooting, and McLaughlin said he was upset that he and other city officials had never been briefed on how the investigation was going.
Criticism of police actions during the elementary school massacre has been mounting since the event, and the U.S. government has announced it will conduct an investigation into the matter.
Local authorities acknowledged that the attacker, Salvador Ramos, entered the building unopposed.
After shooting his grandmother, Ramos got into a vehicle and drove to the vicinity of the elementary school, where his car crashed.
From there, he walked with a rifle and ammunition for twelve minutes until he entered the school and committed the massacre.
