Deadly shooting at Texas elementary school

An 18-year-old man shot his own grandmother before storming into a West Texas elementary school and opening fire Tuesday morning, just two days shy of the end of the school year. During the rampage, 14 students and one teacher were killed, Texas Governor Greg Abbott said.
Abbott has identified the gunman as 18-year-old Salvador Ramos, who was shot and killed by law enforcement. Two officers were also struck by gunfire, but they were not seriously injured.

According to authorities, Ramos, who was armed with a handgun and possibly a rifle, shot his grandmother before entering Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas around 12 p.m.

The school, which is about 85 miles west of San Antonio, has an enrollment of just under 600 students. Terrified children, ranging from second to fourth graders, were reportedly trying to climb out of windows to escape the building.
