18-year-old student kills at least 19 children and 2 adults at primary school

A nightmare in the Texas town of Uvalde: an 18-year-old gunman opened fire at an elementary school there last night. At least 21 people were killed, including 19 children between the ages of 7 and 10. The perpetrator, Salvador Ramos, was killed by the police.

The 18-year-old gunman allegedly shot his grandmother before he went to primary school. His grandmother is currently in critical condition.

Many parents and relatives of the students and teachers who attended the primary school are currently still waiting at the school for news about their loved ones.

Local authorities say Ramos, who attended a secondary school in the same town as the primary school, acted alone. His motive is not yet known. CNN reports that he posted a photo of two semiautomatic weapons on Instagram before the shooting. In his TikTok bio, he wrote: ” Children, be afraid” .

The attack in Uvalde, a small village near the Mexican border, is the latest in a series of deadly shootings in America. Biden has since responded and spoken out about the increasing gun violence in the US. He writes on Twitter that he is becoming “death sick” from the gun lobby. “The idea that an 18-year-old child can buy a gun is wrong. I’ve had enough. We have to do something, ” he said in a press conference.
