A team of border agents rushed the school without backup and killed the gunman. The agent was “wounded, but able to walk out of the school,” according to Townhall.
Fox News’ Bill Melugin said the Border Patrol Tactical Unit “formed a stacking maneuver while Texas law enforcement was engaged with the shooter who was barricaded.” Melugin continued, stating that the agent “ended up exchanging gunfire with the shooter and killed the shooter.”
The heroic actions of the Border Patrol team went largely unnoticed by the sitting administration, however.
President Joe Biden did not take any time to honor the victims—many of whom were children—or their families, nor did he thank those who stopped the horrific event.

“The idea that an 18 year old kid can walk into a gun store and buy two assault weapons is just wrong,” he said. “What in God’s name do you need an assault weapon for except to kill someone?
“Deer aren’t running through the forest with kevlar vests on for God’s sake! It’s just sick!”
Fox News host Tucker Carlson commented on his speech, calling Biden “frail, confused” and “bitterly partisan.”
“The President of the United States, frail, confused, bitterly partisan, desecrating the memory of recently murdered children with tired talking points of the Democratic Party, dividing the country in a moment of deep pain rather than uniting.”
