Gunman kills 19 children, 2 teachers at Texas elementary school

Nineteen children and two teachers were killed when a teenage gunman stormed a Texas elementary school in Uvalde, on Tuesday, the country’s worst school shooting in nearly a decade.

Authorities said that the 18-year-old suspect shot his own grandmother, who survived, before going on to kill others.

After fleeing that scene, he crashed into the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, a city about 80 miles (130 km) west of San Antonio where he went on a bloody rampage before being killed by police.

According to a TV interview by Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Sergeant Erick Estrada, officers responding to the shooting saw the suspect emerge from the crashed vehicle with a rifle and began engaging the suspect, who nevertheless charged into the building and opened fire.
