The school district police chief who served as on-site commander during last week’s deadly shooting in Uvalde says he’s talking daily with investigators, contradicting claims from state law enforcement that he’s stopped cooperating.

Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District Police Chief Pete Arredondo told CNN in a brief interview Wednesday that he’s speaking regularly with Texas Department of Public Safety investigators.

Nineteen children and two teachers died in the attack at Robb Elementary School, the deadliest school shooting in nearly a decade.

State officials have said 19 police officers waited outside the classroom where Salvador Ramos had opened fire, despite repeated pleas from children calling 911 for help.
