Massacre at an elementary school in Texas

Texas gunman, 18, shoots 14 elementary school students, one teacher, seriously injures 13 — including his grandmother: Worst elementary school massacre since Sandy Hook in 2012

Tuesday afternoon, Texas Governor Greg Abbott confirmed that 14 students and teachers were killed in the Ovaldi elementary school shooting.

Abbott said the gunman was an 18-year-old from Salvador Rome - but the name was later clarified as Salvador Ramos.

Ramos was shot dead during the Robb Elementary School shooting: believed to have been killed by law enforcement officers.

Ramos shot his grandmother before he went to school and was in a shootout with Border Patrol agents before cornering himself inside the school premises.

Eovaldi Memorial Hospital confirmed that two dead babies were brought in upon arrival and that they were treating a much larger number.

The district said that the city's civic center would be used as a reunion center and that parents would be able to take their children there.

Fourteen children and a Texas elementary school teacher were killed by an 18-year-old gunman who was then shot by police.

Governor Greg Abbott named 18-year-old Salvador Roma, an Ovaldi High School student, as the gunman who allegedly killed 14 students at Robb Elementary School and one teacher. "He shot and killed horrifically and incomprehensibly 14 students and killed a teacher," Abbott told a news conference.

In addition, thirteen children are receiving treatment in the emergency room at Ewald Memorial and a 45-year-old man who had "grazing."

San Antonio Health University also confirmed that it had received a currently unknown baby and a 66-year-old woman in critical condition.

Abbott said Roma, equipped with a pistol and possibly a shotgun, shot his grandmother, whose condition is unknown, before entering the school and opening fire.
