UVALDE, Tx. – Authorities are releasing information on the shooter who they say is behind the shooting at a Texas elementary school.

The gunman has been identified as 18-year-old Salvador Ramos.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott said Romas shot his grandmother before he went on the shooting rampage around 11:30 a.m. at Robb Elementary School, where second through fourth graders attend. Romas entered the school with a handgun, and possibly a rifle, and opened fire, Abbott said. He said the shooter was likely killed by responding officers but that the events were still being investigated.
