The perpetrator of the Texas elementary school shooting was an 18-year-old
According to information provided by the spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety, Chris Olivarez, despite the fact that the police managed to break the windows to evacuate the children and the staff of the educational establishment, Ramos killed 21 people, injuring another 17, however, he was shot down by the authorities.
Salvador Ramos first shot his grandmother in her home and then went to school, where he crashed his car and entered the building wearing tactical gear and a rifle.
