A preliminary report by the Texas House investigative committee probing the Uvalde, Texas, school massacre outlines multiple failures by several entities, including the overall law enforcement response, the Uvalde school system, the shooter’s family and social media platforms.
Families of the victims are expected to meet with the committee Sunday afternoon to discuss the 77-page report.
Twenty-one people, including 19 children and two teachers, were killed in the shooting.

CNN has obtained and is reviewing a preliminary report by a Texas House investigative committee on the Uvalde, Texas, school massacre that left 21 people, including 19 children and two teachers, dead.
The report was made available to victims’ families Sunday morning. It was expected to focus on the facts of the attack, include a chronological sequence of events, a timeline, a law enforcement manifest, and details on the shooter, a source previously told CNN.

Members of the Texas Department of Public Safety, the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District police chief and officers, the district superintendent, the school’s principal, a teacher and custodial staff are among those who testified behind closed doors to the committee — with roughly 40 people testifying, according to one source.
Families of the victims are expected to receive the report and hallway surveillance video, with no audio, of the law enforcement response on Sunday morning to provide them with an opportunity to review it before meeting with members of the investigative committee.
Printed copies of the report were hand-delivered to Uvalde and Texas officials Saturday night out of fear the document might leak to the media before family members of the victims were able to read it, according to some of the officials who received the report.
The investigative committee’s report and the video are expected to be released to the public concurrent with Sunday’s meeting with family members. A news conference is scheduled for Sunday afternoon for members of the press to ask the committee questions. CNN will read the report once it is made public and will update this developing story.
“The only thing stopping a hallway of dedicated officers from entering rooms 111 and 112 was the on-scene commander, who decided to place the lives of officers before the lives of children,” McCraw said at the time.
