Hero Border Agent Rushed Into Uvalde School with Barber’s Shotgun to Save Daughter, Wife

An off-duty US Customs and Border Protection agent fearlessly rushed into Robb Elementary School with his barber’s shotgun and rescued dozens of children and his daughter after his wife texted him that there was an active shooter.

Jacob Albarado had just sat down for a haircut when he received the horrifying message from his wife, Trisha, a fourth-grade teacher at the Uvalde, Texas, elementary school, he told the New York Times.

“There’s an active shooter,” she wrote. “Help,” she sent before sending a chilling: “I love you.”

He immediately leaped out of his seat, grabbed the barber’s shotgun and sped off toward the school.

His daughter, a second-grader, was locked inside a bathroom while his wife hid under desks with her students, the Times reported.

In another wing of the school, 18-year-old crazed gunman Salvador Ramos had opened fire and ultimately murdered 19 children and two teachers.

A tactical team was preparing to enter the school when Albarado arrived. Desperate to get his daughter and wife out, he made a plan with other officers to try to enter the school and evacuate as many students as possible.

He said he entered the wing of the school where he knew his daughter was located, and as he searched for her, began “clearing all the classes in her wing,” he told the Times.

Two officers with guns drawn provided cover while two others guided dozens of “hysterical” children and teachers out to the sidewalk, he said.

When Albarado finally saw his 8-year-old daughter, Jayda, they embraced, but he kept moving forward to bring more students to safety.

“I did what I was trained to do,” Albarado told the paper.

In a Facebook post just after midnight Wednesday morning, Albarado said one of his daughter’s teammates and friends was among the 19 students who were killed.

“I’m so angry, saddened and grateful all at once. Only time will heal their pain and hopefully changes will be made at all schools in the U.S. and teachers will be trained & allowed to carry in order to protect themselves and students,” he wrote.

    This is so sad, why was the teachers not already trained and carrying guns, what happened the last time this same event happened it was supposed to be set that teachers and officers would be in every school. Why was there not locked doors between the children and this evil man, Can anyone answer my questions, Congress and senate talk talk, and never do anything except try to take everybody’s guns, When you take all guns then we all are setting ducks for mental people, I can tell them, that’s not gonna happen, sure some will give up their safety, But many will not, You talking about civil war in America, Is that what they are hoping for.. Maybe.. Every school should be locked and officers standing between the children and the demons in mental people..

    if it were not for our second amendment right to bear arms that barber would not have had that shotgun and in all likely hood more children would have died.we need to get to the bottom of why so many gen z and millennials are prone to mass shootings because the generations before them sure as heck were not in fact as a baby boomer I seen pickups in the high school parking lot with hunting rifles in the back window and no one was ever shot or even threatened with a gun at school so clearly something changed with the way kids were brought up that turned them into monsters.

    Do we trust our teachers? How many are woke and grooming our children? How many are teaching CRT and brainwashing our children? What would those teachers do with guns?

    You should carry a gun because you can’t carry a cop. When seconds count, police are only minutes away. Cops carry a gun to protect themselves, NOT YOU.
