"I wasn't just trying to save my child: I was trying to get as many people out of there as I could."

Fox's Laura Ingraham spoke with Jacob Albarado, one of the heroes of the day during the mass school shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde Texas.

"Photo of off-duty Border Patrol agent Jacob Albarado who borrowed a shotgun from his barber in the middle of a haircut and ran into the school in Uvalde with his wife and daughter inside," tweeted journalist Jack Posobiec on the occasion:

Ingraham started in by talking about how Albarado had previously attended an awards ceremony for his second-grade daughter at the school, having no idea that, a short time later, he would be armed with his friend's shotgun and trying to save her, and his wife Trisha, who worked at the school as a teacher.

Albarado was about to get a haircut, when he received an alarming text from his wife, telling him there was an active shooter at the school, to help, and that she loved him. The barber lent him his shotgun, and he sped off to the school.

"I was trying to get to my wife's [class]room," he told Ingraham, but he was able to speak with her on the phone, and she confirmed that she had already made it to safety at the funeral home across the street, and, according to him, "from that point on, I went to look for my daughter."

Ingraham then played a clip of CNN's Jake Tapper, who, incredibly, was criticizing the fact that Albarado was able to enter the school while others were being held back and even handcuffed. This despite Albarado saving dozens of children and teachers in the process.

Albarado responded:

"Once again, it was just complete chaos. Everybody was concerned for their child."

"Thankfully, like I said, I was off-duty. I've been born and raised in Uvalde for going on 42 years... I was able to get on campus. And, like I said, I wasn't just trying to save my child: I was trying to get as many people out of there as I could."

For motives that still remain cloudy— and will be under a complete investigation by the Department of Justice— Uvalde law enforcement officers on duty were told to stand down for what appears to have been over an hour at the time the active shooter had free reign to shoot and kill students and teachers inside the school.
