State and local agencies are also conducting

On Thursday, the Texas House investigative committee held its first hearing in its probe into the Robb Elementary shooting.
The panel may release its preliminary findings before the full probe is complete, Republican state Rep. Dustin Burrows, the committee chairman, said in the panel’s opening remarks. The preliminary report is expected to be complete by the end of the month, a source close to the committee told CNN.

How to offer support when a mass shooting occurs
Burrows, along with the two other committee members — Moody and former Texas Supreme Court Justice Eva Guzman — heard private testimony from top Texas Department of Public Safety officials Thursday, including from McCraw, according to a witness list provided by the committee.
Both Moody and Burrows declined to share details about Thursday’s closed-door session. When asked how it felt reviewing the evidence, Moody told CNN Thursday, “Like every other parent in this state, I’m sad. I’m scared. I’m shocked.”
The committee will have two days of hearings next week, where they’ll hear from witnesses behind closed doors. A public notice of the hearings did not list the specific witnesses but noted the panel will hear “invited testimony from law enforcement authorities and other affected parties related to” the attack.
The panel will meet again next week to review more evidence and conduct more interviews, Burrows said.
State and local agencies are also conducting investigations into the massacre and law enforcement response, though residents and officials alike have become frustrated with the apparent lack of transparency and cooperation.
“It’s clear that the state and local officials now are not cooperating with each other,” US Rep. Joaquin Castro, a Texas Democrat, told CNN Saturday, noting he’s asked the FBI to take the full lead on the investigation.
The US Department of Justice will also conduct a federal review of the law enforcement response at the request of Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin, the agency announced last week.
