A timeline of 911 calls during the Texas school shooting

Video and calls to 911 reveal a timeline of horror after gunman Salvador Ramos, 18, opened fire and fatally shot 19 fourth-grade students and two teachers on Tuesday at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.

11:27 a.m.: Video shows a rear door to the Robb Elementary School school propped open by a teacher. 

11:28 a.m.: Salvador Ramos crashes his grandmother’s truck nearby. The teacher goes inside the school, apparently to grab a cellphone. Ramos opens fire on two men at a funeral home across the street. The teacher is seen on video on her phone and believed to be calling 911. 

11:30 a.m.: A 911 caller, who could be the teacher who grabbed phone, says a car has crashed and that there’s a man with a gun

11:31 a.m.: Ramos begins shooting at the school. Police arrive at the funeral home. A cop drives into the school parking lot but doesn’t see Ramos, who is crouching between vehicles. 

11:33 a.m.: The gunman enters the school through the propped-open door and walks down a hallway toward rooms 111 and 112, firing off more than 100 rounds. 

11:35 a.m.: Three Uvalde police officers enter the school, followed by four more cops, including a county deputy sheriff. The doors to both of the classrooms are locked. 

11:37 a.m.: Sixteen more shots are fired.
