Fourteen children and a teacher have been killed at a Texas elementary school by an 18-year-old gunman who was then shot dead by cops. 

Governor Greg Abbott named 18-year-old Salvador Roma, a student at Uvalde High School, as the gunman who allegedly shot and killed 14 Robb elementary school students and one teacher on Tuesday afternoon. 

‘He shot and killed horrifically and incomprehensibly 14 students and killed a teacher,’ Abbott said at a press briefing. 

Additionally, thirteen children are being treated at the Uvalde Memorial emergency room as well as a 45-year-old man who suffered a ‘graze.’

University Health San Antonio also confirmed they received a child whose condition is currently unknown and a 66-year-old woman who is critical condition. 

Roma, equipped with a handgun and possibly a rifle, allegedly shot his grandmother, whose condition is not yet known, before entering the school and opening fire, Abbott said. 

Photos show a pickup truck that crashed outside the school, which according to Abbott, Roma abandoned before entering the school.

The 18-year-old engaged in a firefight with border patrol and then ran into the school and barricaded himself, police said. 

Police initially reported he was arrested before confirming he died.

Concerned parents were captured at the scene desperately searching for their children and video from the chaotic scene showed police arriving to the school campus with their guns in hand.

One widely shared video appears to show the suspected gunman approach the school while what sounds like gunfire is going off in the background. 

‘There is an active shooter at Robb Elementary. Law enforcement is on site,’ The Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District said. ‘Your cooperation is needed at this time by not visiting the campus. As soon as more information is gathered it will be shared.’

Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin told Fox News that shots were fired offsite and that after shooting one person the gunman ran to the school where he remained barricaded.
