A veteran teacher who was “just a sweetheart” and an 8-year-old boy were among those killed in the mass shooting at a Texas elementary school, according to devastated loved ones.
At least 19 children and two teachers were killed when the alleged gunman, 18-year-old Salvador Ramos, opened fire Tuesday at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, a small, working-class town near the Mexico border.
All victims were killed inside a single classroom, the Texas Department of Public Safety said Wednesday.
Also among the victims were several 10-year-old students who were enrolled in the fourth grade, including two cousins.
Ramos, a student at Uvalde High School, was killed by the police, authorities said.
