Lt. Christopher Olivarez of the Texas Department of Public Safety told NBC’s “Today” that police and others responding to Tuesday’s attack broke windows at the school in an effort to allow students and teachers inside to escape.

Olivarez told CNN that all victims were in the same fourth-grade classroom at Robb Elementary School.

Eventually law enforcement officers broke into the classroom and killed him.
