14 Students And 1 Teacher Killed In Mass Shooting At Texas Elementary School

Fourteen Robb Elementary School students and one teacher have been killed by a 19-year-old male. Early reports via ABCNews state that the gunman entered the school with a handgun and perhaps a rifle but that has not officially been confirmed at this time.

The shooter has been killed as a result of police engagement and not suicide. Shortly after 2 pm, parents were told that all students at the school had been transferred to Sgt. Willie Deleon Civic Center where they can be reunited with their loved ones. Uvalde police stated at a press conference that the victims were in second, third, and fourth grade. According to DailyMail, the shooter also shot his own grandmother prior to being killed, her condition is currently unknown.

The Houston branch of the ATF is currently investigating the situation in addition to the Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection, and local authorities.

We will update this story with more information as it becomes available.
