As Uvalde Reels from School Massacre, a Look Back at Historic 1970 Chicano Walkout at Robb Elementary
Uvalde, Texas, school district police chief Pete Arredondo has resigned from his new position on Uvalde's City Council after facing widespread criticism over his handling of the May 24 school massacre when an 18-year-old gunman shot dead 19 fourth graders and two teachers. State authorities say Arredondo was the incident commander who ordered officers to wait in the school's hallway for over an hour instead of confronting the gunman. We speak with Sewell Chan, editor-in-chief of The Texas Tribune, which has led an investigation into the failed police response to the school shooting. "The heavy militarization of the region raises profound questions about why the police and law enforcement response was so lacking," said Chan. We also feature the Tribune's video report on a 1970 Mexican American student-led walkout that took place in Uvalde.

Chicago TribuneThe Illinois teen accused of fatally gunning down six people and wounding dozens more at a Fourth of July parade dressed as a woman to disguise himself during the rampage, police announced Tuesday.

Highland Park resident Robert "Bobby" Crimo, 21, "did this to conceal his facial tattoos and his identity, and help him during the escape with... other people who were fleeing the chaos," Lake County Sgt. Christopher Covelli said at a press conference.

The gun used at the Highland Park Fourth of July parade was purchased legally in Illinois by Crimo, who had been planning the attack for "several weeks," according to Covelli. After the massacre, he blended into the crowd and ran to his mother's home, he added. Police believe Crimo fired more than 70 rounds at innocent spectators there to enjoy the day, Covelli said.
