UVALDE, Texas—The Texas Department of Public Safety is preparing to release a Texas Ranger already under investigation for her reaction during the Uvalde school shooting, a source close to the investigation told KVUE on Friday.
According to a report by CNNthat Ranger has been identified as Ryan Kindell, who was notified of the intention to quit on Friday. Kindell was suspended during the investigation.
If the termination goes through, CNN reports that he would become the second member of the DPS to be fired since the Robb Elementary shooting in May. Meanwhile, as a Texas Ranger, a division of the DPS, he would be the most senior officer to respond to a discharge that day.
CNN reported that Kindell arrived at school around 12 p.m. on May 24 and focused on providing updates to his higher ranks.
Sources told CNN that he told investigators he had no discussions about ways to break the classroom, as would have been expected of a person with his title. He also reportedly told them his actions were “minimal.”
