Texas Gov. Greg Abbott holds a news conference on the Uvalde mass school shooting

An 18-year-old gunman who opened fire Tuesday at a Uvalde, Texas elementary school killed at least 19 children and two adults, officials said. The gunman was killed by law enforcement. The latest death toll comes from a spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety. Officials said the gunman was working alone. In a Tuesday afternoon press conference, Texas Governor Greg Abbott identified the alleged shooter as an 18-year-old man from Uvalde named Salvador Ramos. "It is believed that responding officers killed him," Abbott said. Abbott said the man walked into Robb Elementary School, about 85 miles west of San Antonio, and opened fire. It was the deadliest school shooting in Texas history and the deadliest shooting at a U.S. grade school since a gunman killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut. MORE:
