At least 14 students and one teacher have been killed in a shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas just outside of San Antonio.

Governor Greg Abbott told reporters that he learned that the gunman had “shot and killed 14 students and a teacher.”

The gunman, 18 year-old male, identified as Salvador Ramos entered the elementary school with a handgun, possibly a rifle, and opened fire, Abbott said. The shooter is now dead.

Abbott reported that the shooter was likely killed by gunshots from responding officers, but that information was still being investigated.

The school district said “parents should pick up students at the regular dismissal times at the child’s campus. Officers will be on site to escort students to the cars.”

This horrific event happened just a couple weeks after the mass shooting at Topps supermarket in Buffalo, New York. The events are not reported to be related, though both very tragic and unfortunate events.
