Deadly shooting at Texas elementary school

May 25, 2022 - Nineteen children and two adults have died in a shooting at a primary school in south Texas. The gunman opened fire on Tuesday at the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde before he was killed by police.

It was the nation's worst school shooting in nearly a decade, according to Reuters.

The carnage began with the 18-year-old suspect, identified as Salvador Ramos, shooting his own grandmother, who survived, authorities said.

He fled that scene and crashed his car near the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, a town about 130 km west of San Antonio. There he launched a bloody rampage that ended when he was killed, apparently shot by police, Reuters said.
