Breaking: At Least 14 Children, 1 Teacher Killed in Shooting at Texas Elementary School

A shooting at a Texas elementary school left 14 students and one teacher dead, Gov. Greg Abbott said Tuesday afternoon.

Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, about 60 miles east of the southern border of Mexico and about 80 miles west of San Antonio, was placed on lockdown around 11:43 a.m. local time after gunshots were heard in the area, the school wrote on Facebook.

About a half-hour later, the school reported an “active shooter” at the location who was in police custody by 1:06 p.m., the Uvalde Police Department confirmed on Facebook.

Two children arrived at Uvalde Memorial Hospital dead from apparent gunshot wounds following the incident, a hospital official told The Post.

Another 14 students and a man in his 40s were treated at the emergency room either for gunshot wounds or “something related to the incident,” the official said. Of those 14, two were transferred to San Antonio and another patient is waiting to be transferred.

One child and a 66-year-old woman in critical condition were transported to University Health San Antonio, the only Level 1 trauma center for both adults and children in the region, the hospital wrote on Twitter. The child’s condition was not immediately clear and it’s also unclear if those two patients were transferred from Uvalde Memorial Hospital.

Police officials couldn’t immediately be reached for further details about the incident but are slated to have a news conference shortly.

All students have been accounted for and a reunification site has been set up at the Willie DeLeon Civic Center.

    The title of the article is misleading. At Least 14 Children, 1 Teacher Killed In Shooting, but the text of the article says Two children arrived at Uvalde Memorial Hospital dead from apparent gunshot wounds following the incident, a hospital official told The Post.

    Another 14 students and a man in his 40s were treated at the emergency room either for gunshot wounds or “something related to the incident,” the official said. Of those 14, two were transferred to San Antonio and another patient is waiting to be transferred.

    So are there 14 students and a teacher dead or are there 2 dead?

      I agree, the article is misleading. I wish reporters/journalists would take care in passing information.

    This shows we need to build more mental health facilities

    I heard Biden’s speech and thought it thoroughly hypercritical coming from someone who is pro-abortion and mandates unstable serums to be used on children. Guns will always be available to the lawless section of the public through Cartels and the Black Market. Taking protection away from law-abiding citizens is not the answer except that the communist Democrat Party would like total control of the lives of all Americans. Add to that this administration has created a lawless society and fostered mental illness by the burdens they are placing on We The People every day. They are promoting a socialist communist agenda in all areas and allowing the dregs of humanity all over the world to enter freely though our Southern Border. What a douche!!!! Tired of being lied to by this administration and tired of the uneducated, lazy, sheep that are their followers.

      And..don’t forget..we can go..All Out..to protect illegal immigrants…but can’t set up firm scanners and locks for our school doors. It is insanity take overs of vulnerable peoples minds to convince the rest of us that none should have guns in possession too. I wouldn’t be surprised if these horrid events were all preplanned just to get our Constituion.2nd amendment changed or to trash the whole Constitution. Commie’s leftist libs like playing such deadly games, imo.
