tx shooting is deadliest at a grade school since Sandy Hook
Texas Governor Greg Abbott confirmed that the shooter is dead. The 18-year-old gunman was identified as Salvador Ramos. He entered the school with a rifle and handgun. When he stepped inside the school, he opened fire on several students and several teachers. The gunman then died after a confrontation with two police officers. It is not clear exactly when the confrontation took place.
Robb Elementary School is located in Uvalde, Texas, and had a student enrollment of under 600. It serves students in second, third, and fourth grades. It was in its last week of classes before summer break. As a result, it was heavily guarded by law enforcement officers and FBI agents.
The shooting was the second deadliest to occur at an educational institution in the United States in a decade. The Sandy Hook Promise organization sent condolences to the families of the victims. The 18-year-old gunman, Salvador Ramos, was a resident of Uvalde. He entered the school with a handgun, but authorities believe he also had a rifle.
The Texas shooting is the deadliest shooting at a grade school in the country since Sandy Hook. According to Education Week, six people were killed in the school shooting in 2022. Sandy Hook Elementary School was the country’s deadliest shooting in 2012. It killed 20 first-graders and six teachers. It also claimed three adults and one special education aide. The attack prompted calls for tighter gun control and increased armed guards at schools.
Gunman killed by Border Patrol officers
A Border Patrol official confirmed on Thursday that a Border Patrol agent killed the gunman in the Texas shooting. The agents who responded to the shooting in the Uvalde school district were part of the agency’s elite BORTAC special operations team, the agency’s equivalent of a SWAT team. They stormed the classroom in which the gunman was barricaded and engaged him with a gun and a shield. The agents then shot the gunman dead, killing him in the process.
The Border Patrol officers who responded to the shooting were also part of the community. Some of them live in the area and have children who go to the school. They arrived at the school in the early hours of Friday. A BORTAC member arranged for a “stack” to enter the school. Off-duty agents then assisted in the rescue of children from classrooms.
The Border Patrol agents who killed the gunman were part of a special unit that has been accused of human rights abuses and violent tactics. The agents were responding to an active shooter situation at Robb Elementary school when they were alerted by a school call. The agents encountered a man with a rifle inside the school. Ultimately, they killed the 18-year-old shooter.
22 children killed
Twenty-two elementary school children, ages nine to 11, were killed in a Texas shooting Thursday. The suspect opened fire on the school as he entered. Law enforcement shot and killed the suspect. The victims included 19 children, ages nine to eleven, and a teacher. There were also multiple survivors.
Police say the shooter shot his grandmother before entering the school. After shooting children, he then barricaded himself inside a classroom. The response officers shot him before he could finish. The shooter had previously killed his grandmother. The gunman also shot a school resource officer, a female school resource officer.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott weighed in on the tragedy, claiming that “the focus should be on the children and their families.” He said the shooting was a tragedy and that “the focus should be on the survivors and their families.” Governor Abbott has ordered the state flag to fly at half-staff until sunset on May 28. The president is expected to speak about the shooting later Tuesday.
President Trump just returned from a trip to Asia, where he met with leaders of the Indo-Pacific region. He also met with Asian leaders at a high-level summit. Several of the victims are suspected to be children of Customs and Border Patrol agents. Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin declined to confirm the number of casualties but said in a text message that his office is trying to contact parents.
2 teachers also killed
On Tuesday, 19 students and two teachers were killed in a shooting at a Texas elementary school. The attack also injured 17 people. The shooting occurred at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. It is the second deadliest school shooting in U.S. history. Nevaeh Bravo, a fourth-grader at the school, is survived by her parents, grandparents, and extended family.
The shooter’s father, Daniel Alvarez, has vowed to find the killer, but first he must stop a gunman from killing children. The Texas shooting is a tragedy that should not be tolerated. Parents should make sure their children are safe. This means that they need to follow safety measures at all times, no matter where they are. Teachers should not be allowed to carry weapons in schools.
Two teachers also died in the shooting: Irma Garcia and Eva Mireles. Garcia had been teaching at the school for 23 years, and had four children. Her husband, Jose Antonio Garcia, died of a heart attack two days after the shooting. The couple had been married for 24 years. Their son was a seventh grader. They were both in the classroom when the shooting took place.
66-year-old grandmother critically wounded
A 66-year-old grandmother was shot in the head by a Texas gunman on Tuesday morning. She was able to run across the street and call the police, allowing her to reach the hospital by helicopter. Authorities expect the shooting victim to survive. The gunman fled after the shooting.
The grandmother was the first victim of the shooting. Her condition has been upgraded to “good” after doctors determined that her injuries are not life-threatening. She will likely require months of recovery. Authorities are working to identify the shooter. The family is waiting to learn if their child is among the dead or injured.
Authorities are identifying the gunman as Salvador Ramos, the 18-year-old from Uvalde, Texas. Ramos, who was armed with an assault rifle, shot the grandmother before he fled the scene. Police are working to apprehend the suspect, who was wearing body armor and several guns. Authorities say Ramos was a lone gunman and shot his grandmother.
Besides the 66-year-old grandmother, a child and an adult have been taken to the hospital. The 10-year-old girl has been treated at University Hospital in San Antonio, while the 66-year-old woman is being treated at University Hospital in San Antonio. A 66-year-old woman and a 10-year-old girl were also airlifted to San Antonio for treatment.
alleged shooter had assault rifle
The alleged shooter in the deadly attack at a St. Louis high school had a legal assault rifle. His parents wanted the gun removed, according to a statement released by the St. Louis Police Commissioner. The alleged shooter’s family was aware of his mental health problems and arranged for him to get treatment. He also stayed in a mental health institution under close supervision. However, it is unclear how he gained possession of the rifle. Police have not publicly revealed where the gun was purchased or where the teen had acquired it.
Payton Gendron reportedly wore white supremacist clothing and symbols. One of them was the sonnenrad symbol, which is used by modern white supremacists and Nazis. Payton also scrawled white supremacist symbols on his gun. In addition to displaying white supremacist symbols, Gendron also reportedly carried a bolt-action rifle and shotgun, both of which are considered assault rifles.
Four other suspects in custody
The suspect has been charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and is being held at the Ott Cribbs police station in Arlington. The investigation is continuing and police said they are talking to the suspect. Police are also trying to identify the weapon used in the shooting. One victim is out of surgery and one remains in the hospital. Another is in the intensive care unit.
The shooting occurred about 5:30 p.m. near Uvalde Memorial Park. It is about a mile from Robb Elementary School, the location of the massacre that killed 19 children and two teachers. After security improvements, Uvalde schools started back this week. While no one knows exactly who fired the bullets that killed the students, the Texas governor has said the shooting was the work of gang members.
Three of the four suspects have been arrested. Two are juveniles and one is a man. Two of them are being held on suspicion of murder. The third suspect, Timothy Robinson, was in custody but has yet to be charged. Two others, Jacobe Benard White and Darryl Thomas Reed, are still at large. The motive for the shooting appears to be robbery.
