Following the recent story in Uvalde, Texas, 19 children and two teachers had already been killed inside Robb Elementary School on Tuesday, Texas Department for Public Safety said.
According to local officials, the 18-year-old gunman, who was identified as Salvador Ramos, was within the school premises for about an hour before the local enforcement forced to enter the classroom he was in to immediately kill him.
Hours before the mass shooting took place, officials say that Ramos has allegedly texted a teenage girl regarding his vicious plans to attack. It has also been previously reported that the gunman shot his grandmother before going to the elementary school, who is currently being hospitalized.
