A Texas politician has identified the Uvalde cop seen checking his phone in the early stages of the Robb Elementary School massacre as the husband of slain teacher Eva Mireles.
She was one of the 21 people who were killed by crazed gunman Salvador Ramos at Robb Elementary School on May 24.
In the footage of the shooting that was leaked on July 12, the officer was shown checking his phone at 11.38am while standing in the hallway.
Seconds later, he walks out of the building.
The day after the leak, Texas state Rep. Joe Moody tweeted the picture of Ruiz on his phone and wrote: 'This is the husband of teacher Eva Mireles, who contacted him on his phone from her classroom while he was on-scene to say that she’d been shot and was dying.'
