Police officials from the Texas Department of Public Safety, US Customs and Border Protection and various other local agencies responded to the deadly shooting in the small town located about 60 miles east of the Mexico border. “Texans across the state are grieving for the victims of this senseless crime and for the community of Uvalde,” Gov Greg Abbott said in a statement. “Cecilia and I mourn this horrific loss and we urge all Texans to come together to show our unwavering support to all who are suffering. We thank the courageous first responders who worked to finally secure Robb Elementary School.”

Who was Salvador Ramos' grandmother?

Not much is known about Ramos' grandmother except that the gunman shot her before heading to Robb Elementary School in Uvalde with two assault rifles around 11:32 am. Texas State Sen Roland Gutierrez reportedly said that the two assault rifles used in the massacre were bought by the shooter on his 18th birthday.

Ramos' grandmother has survived the attack and is holding on, reports have claimed. At a press conference in Abilene, Abbott said that Ramos abandoned his vehicle and entered the school before “horrifically” and “incomprehensibly” murdering several students and a teacher. He was then shot dead by responding officers.

President Joe Biden has condemned the shooting in a series of tweets. He has also addressed the nation on the crisis. "These kinds of mass shootings rarely happen elsewhere in the world. Why are we willing to live with this carnage? Why do we keep letting this happen? Where in God’s name is our backbone to have the courage to deal with it? It’s time to turn this pain into action," one tweet reads. "Tonight, there are parents who will never see their child again. Parents who will never be the same. To lose a child is to have a piece of your soul ripped away forever. I ask the nation to pray for them — to give them strength in the darkness," reads another.
