14 students and 1 teacher dead after mass shooting at Texas elementary school

14 students and 1 teacher dead after mass shooting at Texas elementary school

Just a mere ten days after a mass shooting at a grocery store in Buffalo, N.Y, another has unfolded at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. Making a sad story even more harrowing is the fact that the shooter murdered his grandmother in cold blood before embarking on the mass shooting at the elementary school. This shooting carried out by an 18-year-old man saw more than a dozen murdered and even more wounded. A 10-year-old girl and a 66-year-old woman were listed in critical condition according to authorities. 

Reports also indicate that two law enforcement officers were shot, but they’re expected to survive. In a Facebook post shared around 2 pm. CST, the UCISD said students had been evacuated into the nearby Willie DeLeon Civic Center, where parents were allowed to pick up their children. The shooter was reportedly identified as a current or former student of Robb Elementary School. 

Governor Abbott was quick to offer his sympathies to the families and loved ones of the wounded and deceased. “Texans across the state are grieving for the victims of the senseless crime and for the community of Uvalde,” he said. He continued by saying, “Cecilia and I mourn this horrific loss and we urge all Texans to come together to show our unwavering support to all who are suffering. We thank the courageous first responders who worked to finally secure Rob Elementary School. I have instructed the Department of Public Safety and the Texas Rangers to work with local law enforcement to fully investigate this crime.” The local hospital is reportedly treating numerous students in the emergency room. The shooter was murdered at the scene of the crime. According to CNN, the FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) are working with local law enforcement on the investigation.
