    New details have emerged about the heroic efforts of U.S. Border Patrol agents who stormed a classroom at a Texas elementary school this week and killed the 18-year-old Latino shooter who murdered 19 children.

    Approximately 80 federal agents had responded to the shooting on Tuesday at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, but were instructed by local law enforcement to wait and not go after the attacker.

    "After approximately 30 minutes passed, however, the federal agents opted of their own volition to lead the 'stack' of officers inside the school and take down the shooter," NBC News reported.

    The report added that agents from ICE's Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) had also responded to the shooting and were on scene.

    A source told the network that the breaking point for the federal agents was when they saw that parents were trying to get into the building themselves to pull their children out.

    Latino Border Patrol agent Jacob Albarado had just sat down for a haircut when his wife, who was a teacher at Robb Elementary School, texted him and told him what was happening and asked him for help.

    "There's an active shooter," she said. "Help. I love you."

    The New York Times reported that Albarado's barber gave him a shotgun and that Albarado then ran out of the barbershop and sped to the school.

    The Wall Street Journal reported earlier in the week that the approximately 80 Border Patrol agents responded to the shooting out of the roughly 150 Border Patrol agents that were stationed in the town.

    "Initially, the Bortac agents couldn't get into the classroom because of a steel door and cinder block construction," the report said. "Meanwhile, the gunman ... shot at them through the door and walls."

    "The Bortac agents got a master key from the school principal that allowed them to enter the room," the report added. "One Bortac agent's shield was hit by rounds upon entering and a second agent was wounded by shrapnel. A third killed the suspect."

    Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin tweeted out a photograph of the hat that the Border Patrol agent was wearing when he killed the attacker.

    "This is the hat the elite, veteran BORTAC Border Patrol agent was wearing when he breached the classroom with a tactical team and engaged/killed the Uvalde school shooter, a CBP source tells me," Melugin tweeted. "Graze wound to head. Many BP agents in Uvalde have kids at the school."
