Eighteen pupils and two adults have now been confirmed killed in the latest update of the mass shooting in Texas Elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, United States.

Texas Governor, Greg Abbott, said 14 pupils and one teacher were earlier confirmed dead by a lone gunman Salvador Ramos, at Robb Elementary school at about 11.43am on Tuesday.

According to Abbott, the 18-year-old shooter who was also killed in the deadly shooting was said to have abandoned his car and entered the elementary school with a handgun and possibly a rifle.

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

Ramos was said to have killed his grandmother before storming the elementary school. He was said to be wearing a body armor.  Ramos victims were mostly second, third and fourth graders.

Some of his victims were hospitalized, with some in critical conditions. The tragedy happened in the last week of school.

Robb Elementary has an enrolment of just under 600 students. Uvalde is a small city of about 16,000 residents about 80 miles west of San Antonio.

It is the deadliest school shooting in Texas history.
