Texas school Shooting: 18 children & three adults were killed

In one of the bloodiest school shootings in American history, an 18-year-old gunman opened fire at an elementary school in Texas, killing 21 people, including 18 children, and injuring several others before being slain by police.

At before 11.30 a.m. on Tuesday, gunshots broke out from Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, roughly 134 kilometers from San Antonio.

Salvador Ramos, a resident of the region where the school was located, was named as the killer by Texas Governor Greg Abbott.

The motivation of the shooter is unknown.

“He shot and killed 14 pupils and a teacher in a brutal, incomprehensible manner,” Abbott said later that evening; the death toll was ultimately climbed to 18 children and three adults.

Two police officers were shot, but Abbott said they are likely to recover.

The deceased’s names and other details have yet to be revealed.

According to the school’s website, its students range in age from 5 to 11.

The’mass casualty event occurred at Robb Elementary School at about 11:32 this morning,’ according to Uvalde Chief of Police Pete Arredondo.

He said the killer was a lone wolf who was killed in a police shootout.

He stated the deceased youngsters were in the second, third, and fourth classes and were between the ages of 7 and 10.

During his trip back from the Quad Summit in Japan, US President Joe Biden was briefed on the shooting.

After returning to Washington, DC, Biden will address the media about the incident in the evening, according to his press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre.
