Yesterday we reported that 18-year-old Salvador Ramos shot and killed at least 20 people including 2 teachers and elementary school students. Texas Governor, Greg Abbott, revealed that the Ramos was killed by the police who reported to the scene at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde. “He shot and killed horrifically and incomprehensibly 14 students and killed a teacher,” Abbott said.
Abbott continued, “When parents drop their kids off at school, they have every expectation to know that they’re going to be able to pick their child up when that school day ends. And there are families who are in mourning right now. The state of Texas is in mourning with them for the reality that these parents are not going to be able to pick up their parents.”
Abbott also revealed that prior to the Uvalde elementary school shooting, the gunman shared his plans on Facebook about 30 minutes before reaching the school. Abbott said in the first message, he wrote: “I’m going to shoot my grandmother.”
Ramos then said,”I shot my grandmother” and “I’m going to shoot an elementary school,” according to Abbott.
Our thoughts, prayers and hearts go out all of the victims, and their loved ones.
