“Several” students were treated at Uvalde Memorial Hospital’s emergency room following the apparent attack in Uvalde, located about 97 miles west of San Antonio. Univeristy Health San Antonio also reported treating two patients, a child and an adult. Their conditions were not reported.
We have received two patients from the shooting at Robb Elementary in Uvalde, one child and one adult. They are currently being evaluated so we don’t have a condition to release at this time.

The Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District had said an active shooter was reported at Robb Elementary School, which has an enrollment of just under 600 students.
The video above is from a previous story from 2019.
“Law enforcement is on site. Your cooperation is needed at this time by not visiting the campus,” Uvalde CISD posted on its Facebook page at 12:17 p.m. CT.
The rest of the district’s campuses were also placed under a “Secure Status.”
The school district later informed parents that Robb Elementary students were being transported five minutes away to a civic center where reunification is being planned. The district, though, clarified that students would need to be accounted for before they’re released to their parents.
“Robb Elementary Parents, please do not pick up students at this time. Students need to be accounted for before they are released to your care. You will be notified to pick up students once all are accounted for,” the district posted at 12:55 p.m. CT.
The town’s police department warned the public to avoid the school where the scene is still active.
Authorities did not immediately offer details about the suspect or the lockdown.
The town of Uvalde is home to a little over 14,000 residents.
