Adriana Reyes Biography
Who is Adriana Reyes ?
The mother of the deranged 18-year-old maniac who gunned down 19 children and two teachers at a Texas elementary school said she was “shocked” by his deadly outburst, saying “my son was not a violent person.”
Adriana Reyes said her son, shooter Salvador Ramos, “was by himself and didn’t have many friends,” but she denied the two had a volatile relationship, the Daily Mail reported.
“My son was not a violent person,” Reyes told the outlet on Wednesday. “I am surprised by what he did.
“I pray for those families,” she said. “I am praying for all those innocent children, yes I am. They had no part in this.”
Reyes reportedly battled drug use and kicked her troublesome son out of her house, forcing him to move in with her grandmother, whom she shot before her unthinkable rampage.
The grandmother, Celia González, remains hospitalized.
Police said Ramos crashed his truck into a ditch near Robb Elementary School
Police said Ramos crashed his truck into a ditch near Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, and stormed the school with a semi-automatic rifle.
He killed 19 children, two teachers and wounded 17 others before he was shot dead by police.
Ramos had legally purchased two AR-15 assault rifles on his 18th birthday and brought one of them to school before opening fire, police said.
His mother said the two last spoke on Monday, his birthday, and “had a card and a Snoopy stuffed animal to give him,” she told The Mail.

The incident is the second worst school shooting in US history, behind only the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Connecticut, which left 20 youths and six educators dead.
“Evil swept through Uvalde yesterday,” Texas Governor Greg Abbott said Wednesday. “Anyone who shoots their grandmother in the face has to have evil in their heart.”
