The gunman shot his grandmother first in the US school shooting

An 18-year-old gunman in body armor slaughtered at least 21 people, including 19 children and two adults, at a Texas elementary school, prompting an anguished President Joe Biden to urge Congress to “transform this pain into action” to rein in the powerful gun lobby.

Officials said the teen opened fire at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, some 134 kilometers from San Antonio, at about 11.30 a.m. on Tuesday before being slain by law officers.

The suspect was armed with a handgun, an AR-15 semi-automatic weapon, and high-capacity magazines, according to investigators.

According to US media reports, the boy is suspected of shooting his grandma to start the spree.

“He shot and killed fourteen pupils and a teacher in a horrendous, incomprehensible manner,” Abbott added.

The death toll was then risen to 19 youngsters and two 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.

“A mass casualty event occurred at Robb Elementary School at about 11:32 this morning,” said 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.
