Salvador Ramos is known to be the alleged shooting of the Texas Elementary School killing.
Local officials stated that, an 18-year-old man shot and killed at least 22 people, including 19 children, at an elementary school in a city about 85 miles west of San Antonio on Tuesday.
Salvador Ramos is identified as the shooter by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who shot and killed the victims at Robb Elementary School shortly after 11:30 a.m.
Officials say at least 21 people were killed in the shooting, 19 of them being children. In contrast, the ages of the victims involved in the mass shooting have not been confirmed.
One family identified Javier Lopez, a fourth-grade student, as a victim. One teacher has also been identified as a victim.
Gov. Abbott identified the alleged suspect as Salvador Ramos, an 18-year-old Uvalde resident, on Tuesday.
Initial information about Ramos was limited, but Abbott stated that he was believed to have entered the Texas elementary school with a handgun and possibly a rifle.
Gov. Abbott stated that Ramos died at the scene, and he was shot and killed by responding officers. Authorities believe Ramos committed the shooting on his own.
According to authorities, the mass shooting began when the suspect shot his grandmother.
Salvador then crashed his car near Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, about 80 miles (130 kilometers) west of San Antonio, before going on a bloody rampage that ended with him being shot by police.
The grandmother was then airlifted to a hospital and was said to have survived the shooting, though her condition was unknown. Police believe the gunman posted photos of the two guns he used in the shooting on Instagram.
