This build process is doing some of their work and -- is that work is completed we will be prepared. To release in writing to you. A formal. This -- birthday and an information. There's one. -- a couple major -- of the ones. We're we're really set list and we would ask you again as we did yesterday. At the request of all of the family members. They have asked for you to lead. Respect their privacy. They're going through it I know you understand a very difficult trying time. We have in fact. The justice of the chief in the colonel. We assign me to be assigned -- trooper but of these folks to help to maintain. That solitude. So again I would ask you please review. -- is extremely. Heartbreaking. Difficulties with the spoke to endure. Please abide by their request. In addition with the townspeople. In the town of -- -- big crisis intervention team. When you -- haven hospital has been established. Here in the community and they can be reached via telephone. That telephone number is 203. 2704283. And again there. For the open and their available to anyone in the community. Who may have the need to discuss that lost. Q you talked about this this incident in its entirety. I have the ability take some questions I just simply want you to understand. That we still. Have major crime detective and he's done detectives working at. Seen. In the school that is not completed that probably will not be completed for at least another -- and a half to two days and I'm putting a time limit that and could take longer. As explained to the previous press conferences we've done everything we need to do. -- with the -- peel back the onion layer by layer. Stay in the examine every fraction preface of that facility. And that does not include. -- explanation say the outside -- feet outside to -- also part of the crime scene every single vehicle and have a lot. So it's going to be a long painstaking process. That we actually have three teams now being major crime -- in the community. A local partners are working with us and -- -- gonna move that is and expect them along as quickly as possible. We had a meeting this morning and it was a delay with the superintendent of schools. You will be. Hopefully and -- not too distant future up here. Did talk briefly -- some of the issues that that she has encountered. The minute medically is Emery is done I mean that sincerely committed he's done. He is coming here. And we will again provide provide all the detailed information as much he still the bases again relative to of the worked his office did -- overnight. And -- continued to do as we speak. Again as far as actual specific questions take a few but I have to tell you right there are certain things it would just simply. Cards -- we close our chest and in this investigation. Until somebody's taken out of context we have continuity of all the information that we Bryant desert. -- No that's that's that's not accurate the the weaponry that. It was was recovered by era investigators recovered close proximity of of the disease. Then again we're we're investigating. The history of each and every weapon we will know every single thing about those weapons. I don't follow up question -- legally registered with the owners of social work that all being done by the investigators assigned to that test. And efficient -- he -- but he vision that I. Don't believe we're we're again we're gonna allow them medical examiner gonna -- for medical examiner to. But it came in and provide the identities of the shooter but all the deceased in this in this investigation but. That's that's so loses its very good question. The answer I can give you one that is that. Our investigators at the crime scene the school and secondarily that's the yes secondary clinching and we discuss that with a few of those located disease. Did produce some very. A very good evidence in this investigation investigators will be able to use. Hopefully you pay me complete pictures Howell and more importantly why this occurred. We don't we're not gonna name the evidence and -- can talk about the evidence that simply. I simply stated is part and parcel of investigation I don't -- taken out of context. What's being done. We had established the point of entry. It was -- -- -- -- it believe he was not voluntarily let it to school all. That it forces wait for the school but that's as far as we can go on. It. Otherwise. -- -- quite frankly that's that's something again if you stay out of context it sounds suspicious but. As. The rescue crews arrived. The active shooting teams entered the school they entered the school from several different points. And necessitated forcing their way in to gain access to before the rescue to save as many students effect is that possibly good. Hands on fourth you broke many -- what. The like. Was there. The other crime scene the other secondary crime scene as I told you was with a cranky you discover pursuant to the investigation. I want to get a Tenet of identification on the -- suspect. We began doing a great -- work. Again going back the -- everything we could find out about that suspect including not limited to relatives friends coworkers. Of former students. Location of a residence at all those areas had to be people and be interviewed finals series had to be examined. And that causes to discover the secondary crazy with the private residence where they sold -- overseas. Yeah. -- It. To be determined that detectives will will certainly be analyzed everything and put a complete picture together. -- of the evidence that they that they did today. And we're hopeful. We're hopeful that a little bit of -- can be pictures to why is -- veterans and unfortunate incident occurred. Yeah and I'm. Sorry. She she's we -- she shed been treated and then. To be instrumental in this investigation and -- can understand it. That I don't know that I don't -- it. Forced fortunately fortunately this school that would be that would be accurate according to investigators yes here. But I don't I don't wanna. Be too specific there's quite frankly I don't know so I would simply have been -- it was worth we have certain what's that. Allowed to enter the -- I what I would like to do loses its I'd like to. I'd get the next portion if you will today and I don't keep your old they would try to do -- as expeditiously as we possibly can't get as much information out to you. We'd like to get the the superintendent definitely want to come up with the -- leaders. -- to discuss. Certain areas of her responsibility. And then we've we've certainly wanna get the medical exam room they're not worth the gamble this quickly as we possibly can we get. The list of IDs and all the information out to you. For any of you that are new here today. Those -- and I've put together a written press release. Wolf will provide those to you that my vehicle please don't rush my vehicle we've we should have enough for one.

Up until today all right we will look we will try I don't give it time we'll we'll try to be back here. -- must say within the hour I'll make notification so we view it again a runaway. -- -- -- -- -- You have to understand that after the shooting that we get a complete thorough search of the entire area of the neighborhood. With a local partners everything everything was examined him we found anyone that was in the woods. -- -- There would be there would be detained. Pending the investigation so there were no other that we're associated with this -- this investigation.
