US school massacre leaves students, teacher dead
TRT World says at least 21 people including 19 children have been killed in a shooting at a Texas elementary school, and the 18-year-old gunman is dead, US officials said.
Texas Senator Roland Gutierrez who was briefed by Texas Rangers said on Tuesday that 18 children and three adults were killed in the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde town. Later, US authorities said the dead included 19 children and two teachers.
Greg Abbott, governor of the south-central US state, said the assailant “shot and killed, horrifically and incomprehensibly.”
Abbott said the gunman –– a resident of the community –– was believed to have shot his grandmother before heading to Robb Elementary School at around noon, abandoning his vehicle and entering with a handgun, and possibly also a rifle.
