At a school in the town of Uvalde, Texas, at least 19 children and two teachers were killed on Tuesday after an 18-year-old man walked in with a gun and started shooting.

The person is identified as Salvador Ramos, an American citizen and resident of this city of 15,000 inhabitants located approximately 135 kilometers from San Antonio.

Texas Governor Greg Abbot believes Ramos apparently died after confronting police at the school. Two of the officers were hit by bullets, but Abbot said their condition is stable.
