Fourteen children and a teacher have been killed at a Texas elementary school by an 18-year-old gunman who was then shot dead by cops.
Governor Greg Abbott confirmed 14 Robb elementary school students and one teacher were killed by 18-year-old Salvador Roma, a student at Uvalde High School.
Roma allegedly shot his grandmother, whose condition is not yet known, before entering the school and then opening fire, Abbott said.
Additionally, thirteen children are being treated at the Uvalde Memorial emergency room as well as a 45-year-old man who suffered a ‘graze.’
University Health San Antonio confirmed they received a child whose condition is currently unknown and a 66-year-old woman who is critical condition.
The shooter engaged in a firefight with border patrol before the shooting and then ran into the school and barricaded himself inside the school.
Police initially reported he was arrested before confirming he died.
Photos outside the scene show a pickup truck that crashed outside the school, which according to the governor Roma abandoned before entering the school.
Concerned parents were captured at the scene desperately searching for their children and video from the chaotic scene showed police arriving to the school campus with their guns in hand.
One widely shared video appears to show the suspected gunman approach the school while what sounds like gunfire is going off in the background.
