Top key points of the Texas School Shooting Massacre

As a symbol of respect for the victims of the Texas elementary school massacre, US President Joe Biden instructed that flags be flown at half-staff at the White House and other public locations until Saturday.

On Tuesday, an 18-year-old gunman named Salvador Ramos opened fire at Robb Elementary School in Texas, killing 19 children and two adults, only 10 days after the Buffalo supermarket murder. According to CNN, this is the deadliest mass shooting ever since 2018 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida, which killed 17 people. As he arrived to the White House after a five-day trip to Asia, President Joe Biden made a speech. In honor of the deaths, Biden ordered that American flags be flown at half-staff until sunset Saturday.

Key Points of the Texas School Shooting

1. The Texas school massacre claimed the lives of 19 pupils and two adults, with the count of injured expected to rise. Officers on the scene also killed the shooter. According to Texas Governor Greg Abbott, two law enforcement officers were shot, although their wounds were not serious.

2. The firing started around 12 p.m. The shooter “abandoned his truck and entered the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde with a handgun, and he may also have had a rifle,” according to the governor.

3. From second to grade 4, the school has about 500 children, the majority of whom are Hispanic and economically underprivileged. Parents were asked to refrain from picking up their children until all of them had been found. “At this time, please do not pick up students. Before students are released into your care, they must be identified. Once all pupils have been accounted for, you will be informed to pick them up as per school’s website.

4. Governor Greg Abbott stated that the suspect was acting on his own. Ramos shot to death his grandmother prior to actually going to school, according to investigators. “I have no further information concerning the relationship between those two incidents,” Abbott said, adding, “It is being reported that the individual shot his grandmother shortly before he went into the school.”

5. The massacre’s reason remained unknown at the time.

6. A 66-year-old woman and a 10-year-old daughter were both classified in critical condition at University Hospital in San Antonio following the shooting in Uvalde.
