VIDEO: Austin-Travis County EMS (ATCEMS) had difficulty maneuvering around various barriers to get to victims involved in Saturday's Sixth Street shooting.
The union president said their response would have been faster with a unit stationed downtown.
"We have seven patients," first responder audio said." We have one CPR in progress. We need an ambulance up here. We are about to load them up in a cop car otherwise." Audio from first responders detailed the moments where Austin police sprung into action, rendering aid to the Sixth Street mass shooting victims.
"At this point, we believe all patients are being transported by APD officers," the audio continued. ATCEMS said it was difficult to get to the victims because they had to maneuver around barricades that closed off Sixth Street and corralled the large chaotic crowds.
