Who were the 19 children and 2 adults killed in the Texas school shooting 2022?

According to the Associated Press, a mass shooting at an elementary school west of San Antonio today killed 19 second- to fourth-grade students and at least two adults, one of whom was a teacher. A mass shooting killed two boys, Xavier Lopez, 10, and Uziyah Garcia, nine, as well as four girls, Makenna Elrod, 10, Amerie Jo Garcia, 10, Eliahana Torres, 10, and Ellie, whose age and surname were not immediately known. Eva Mireles, 44, and Irma Garcia, both teachers, were also killed.

A teacher, Eva Mireles, was one of the adults killed, according to US media. Her school district’s website stated that she had a college-aged daughter and enjoyed jogging and hiking.

Many of the injured were brought to Uvalde Memorial Hospital, where personnel in scrubs and bereaved families of the fatalities could be seen crying as they went out.

When did the shooting start?

According to Travis Considine, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety, the attack began at 11:30 a.m., when the gunman smashed his car outside the school and went into the building. Two local police officers fired gunfire with the shooter after a homeowner heard the crash and contacted 911.

Both cops were shot, but it was unclear where on campus the altercation took place or how long it took for other officials to arrive.

The attack occurred ten days after a shooter opened fire at a supermarket in Buffalo, killing ten people. It is the 212nd mass shooting in the United States this year, with four or more people killed.

Salvador Ramos, an 18-year-old local resident and American citizen, was arrested. According to a management at a neighborhood Wendy’s, Uvalde school shooter Salvador Ramos worked the day shift. Ramos “kept to himself basically,” according to Adrian Mendes, Wendy’s evening manager.

“He felt like the quiet type, the one who doesn’t say much. And he didn’t really socialize with the other employees,” Mendes said. “He just worked, got paid, and came in to get his check.” Mendes didn’t know Ramos on a personal level and didn’t see him most of the time because they were on different shifts, he said. Ramos worked from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. or 5 p.m., five days a week, and was already working there when Mendes started in February, he said.

Days before the attack, a former classmate of school shooter Salvador Ramos alleged the gunman texted him photographs of a firearm and a bag full of ammunition. The acquaintance, who did not want to be recognized, said he was “close” to Ramos and would periodically hear from him to play Xbox with him.

Is the gunman, Salvador Ramos, dead?

Two local police officers fired gunfire with the shooter after a homeowner heard the crash and contacted 911. Both cops were shot, but it was unclear where on campus the altercation took place or how long it took for other officials to arrive.

According to a law enforcement official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss it, one Border Patrol agent who was working nearby when the shooting began rushed into the school without waiting for backup and shot and killed the gunman who was hiding behind a barricade.

According to the law enforcement source, the agent was wounded but was able to walk out of the school.

Just days before the school massacre, Salvador Ramos (the gunman) shared photographs of firearms on Instagram.

Just three days before the Robb Elementary School tragedy, a photo of two AR15-style guns appeared on an Instagram account linked to the alleged Uvalde gunman. Under the pseudonym “salv8dor_,” the photo was shared as a tale. Officers responding to the school incident shot and killed alleged gunman Salvador Ramos, according to multiple classmates.

Ramos’ TikTok page only contains one video – a clip from the smartphone game Subway Surfers. “Kids be afraid irl” or in real life, according to his bio beneath his profile photo.

After being shot, the grandmother of the suspected gunman is in critical condition.

Sgt. Erick Estrada of the Texas Department of Public Safety told CNN’s Don Lemon on Tuesday that the suspected gunman’s grandmother is in critical condition. Three law enforcement sources informed CNN that the gunman shot his grandmother before entering the school. Estrada said early Tuesday that she was airlifted to the hospital.
