A gunman has killed fourteen students and a teacher in a shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, on Tuesday. The 18-year-old suspect, who is a student at Uvalde High School, is also dead.

“He shot and killed, horrifically and incomprehensibly, 14 students and killed a teacher,” Abbott said.

The gunman also shot his grandmother before entering the elementary school and again opening fire, Abbott said. The shooter had a handgun and possibly a rifle.

“When parents drop their kids off at school, they have every expectation to know that they’re going to be able to pick their child up when that school day ends. And there are families who are in mourning right now,” Abbott said. “The state of Texas is in mourning with them for the reality that these parents are not going to be able to pick up their children.”

According to ABC News, Uvalde Memorial Hospital said “15 students were being treated in the hospital’s emergency department in the wake of the incident. Two patients were transferred to San Antonio for treatment, while a third was pending transfer, the hospital said. A 45-year-old was also hospitalized after getting grazed by a bullet, the hospital said.”

“University Health in San Antonio said it had two patients from the shooting incident — a 66-year-old woman and a 10-year-old girl — both in critical condition,” ABC News added. “Two adult victims of the school shooting are being treated at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, according to an Army official, who did not have an update on their conditions. The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio said it has also received patients from the shooting.”

President Biden has been briefed on the shooting and plans to make remarks on Tuesday night after he returns from his trip to Asia.

“President Biden has been briefed on the horrific news of the elementary school shooting in Texas and will continue to be briefed regularly as information becomes available,” White House press secretary Karine Jean Pierre said in a tweet. “His prayers are with the families impacted by this awful event, and he will speak this evening when he arrives back at the White House.”
