Texas shooting update


Nineteen children and two teachers have been killed after a gunman opened fire at a primary school in Texas.

The attack happened on Tuesday at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, around 80 miles west of San Antonio.

Salvador Ramos, 18, entered the school after exchanging fire with authorities and having earlier shot his grandmother.

He was eventually shot dead after committing America’s deadliest school massacre in nearly a decade.
Five of the students killed have been named as Uziyah Garcia, Xavier Javier Lopez, Amerie Jo Garza, Annabell Guadalupe Rodriguez and Nevaeh Bravo – all aged 9 or 10.

Lisa Garza said her cousin Xavier “was just a loving 10-year-old little boy, just enjoying life, not knowing that this tragedy was going to happen today”.

“He was very bubbly, loved to dance with his brothers, his mom.”
