[OP note: I was tipped about this by Tardus in his thread >>18357
and looked it up.]Twenty people are dead, including 18 children, a teacher, and the suspected gunman
following an "active shooter" report at Robb Elementary school in Uvdale, Texas, according to Gov. Greg Abbott, making this the deadliest shooting at an American elementary school since the attack at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., in 2012. The state police updated the death toll on Tuesday evening, announcing that four more children were among the dead, for a total of 18. According to Fox7 Austin
, the deceased children are 2nd, 3rd and 4th graders between the ages of 7 and 9 years-old. Another 13 children were transported to the hospital.
The suspected shooter, 18-year-old Salvador Ramos
, is believed to have acted alone. It is unclear what his relationship is to the school, if any.
"He shot and killed, horrifically, incomprehensibly, 14 students and killed a teacher," said Abbott, adding that two officers were shot and wounded
and are expected to survive. Ramos was a resident of the community, according to the governor, who added that the shooter was likely killed by responding officers but that events are still being investigated. Uvalde Memorial Hospital said they received 13 children by ambulance or buses for treatment. The hospital added that two children were transferred to a hospital in San Antonio and one child was pending transfer. The hospital added that two individuals were pronounced dead on arrival. The Texas Department of Public Safety and Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin told Fox News that the shooter – who ran to the school – became barricaded inside it. "There is an active shooter at Robb Elementary. Law enforcement is on site," the school posted on Facebook. "Your cooperation is needed at this time by not visiting the campus." The school later posted on Facebook alerting parents that students were being transported to the Willie DeLeon Civic Center for reunification. Additionally, all district and campus activities, after-school programs and events, were canceled for the remainder of the day. -Fox7
Abbott released the following statement following the shooting: Texans across the state are grieving for the victims of this senseless crime and for the community of Uvalde. 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 Robb Elementary School. I have instructed the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Texas Rangers to work with local law enforcement to fully investigate this crime. The Texas Division of Emergency Management is charged with providing local officials all resources necessary to respond to this tragedy as the State of Texas works to ensure the community has what it needs to heal."
[Zionist scumbag Abbott can eat shit and die] Two patients were transferred to San Antonio for treatment, while a third was pending transfer, the hospital said. A 45-year-old was also hospitalized after getting grazed by a bullet, the hospital said. University Health in San Antonio said it had two patients from the shooting incident -- a child and an adult. The hospital said the adult -- a 66-year-old woman -- is in critical condition. It did not have an update yet on the condition of the child. A school official initially clarified to ABC News that the shooting took place off campus, and that Robb Elementary School was under lockdown. The school informed parents shortly after 2 p.m. local time that students had been transported to the Sgt. Willie Deleon Civic Center, the reunification site, and could be picked up.https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/least-two-children-dead-multiple-injured-after-texas-elementary-school-shootinghttps://archive.ph/NObyd
