Abbott said the man visited the school by car and entered the school with a pistol. It is said that he may have also carried a rifle. It is estimated that police who arrived at the scene shot and killed the suspect, and two policemen were also shot but not injured. The suspect’s motive is still under investigation.

In an interview with CNN, Texas State Senator Gutierrez explained that the investigation authorities explained that the suspect man had purchased a highly lethal assault rifle (assault gun) on his 18th birthday. CNN also reported that the man also shot his grandmother before the incident at the school.

Police said the incident happened around 11:30 a.m. It is believed to be the suspect’s separate crime. Police said only to the victims that many were wounded and many were dead. A local hospital said on Facebook that they admitted 13 children, and two who arrived at the hospital died.

Uvalde, about 130 kilometers west of San Antonio, is the second-most populous city in the state. The border with Mexico is about 90 kilometers away, and it takes about an hour and a half to drive there. The population is about 16,000, of which Hispanics account for about 70%. According to the Associated Press, about 600 children were registered at the Robb Elementary School, where the incident occurred.
