Fourteen children and a teacher were killed on Tuesday after a teenage gunman opened fire in a primary school in rural Texas.

The 18-year-old shooter, Salvador Ramos, entered Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, about 85 miles west of San Antonio, on Tuesday morning with a handgun and a rifle.

“He shot and killed horrifically, incomprehensibly, 14 students and killed a teacher,” Greg Abbott, Texas’ governor, said.

The Uvalde Police Department said the suspect was killed by responding officers just after 1pm. He was reportedly a student at a nearby high school.
