Acting police chief during Uvalde school shooting quits in wake of criticism

Lt. Mariano Pargas, Uvalde’s acting police chief during the Robb Elementary School mass shooting, has resigned from the department effective immediately in the wake of criticism over his actions during the massacre.

He had been suspended pending an investigation into his conduct during the response to the shooting on May 24.

Pargas was offered a retirement package last week, however, as a result of the media coverage earlier this week surrounding his actions, the city rescinded it and was planning to fire him. He resigned before they could fire him.
