The Uvalde school shooting was a mass shooting that occurred on May 24, 2022, at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, United States, when 18-year-old Salvador Ramos fatally shot 19 students and two teachers. 17 others were injured, but survived. After shooting and severely wounding his grandmother at their home earlier that day, Ramos drove to and entered the school, remaining for more than an hour in the classrooms where he shot his victims before members of the United States Border Patrol fatally shot him, after bypassing numerous local and state officers who had been in the school’s hallways for over an hour.
