19 Children and 2 Teachers Die in Another Mass Shooting

Texas -- May 25, 2022 --  The nation mourns the loss of 19 children and two adults in the elementary school shooting yesterday in Texas. Robb Elementary School in Uvald, were two days away from their summer break when Tuesday's massacre unfolded.

At 11:43 a.m., a note was posted on the Facebook feed: "Please know at this time Robb Elementary is under a Lockdown Status due to gunshots in the area. The pupils and staff are safe in the building," it read.

Then came a second message: "There is an active shooter at Robb Elementary. Law enforcement is on site."

School administrators asked parents to stay away. The school serves about 570 children in second through fourth grades, nearly 90% of them Hispanic.

The details that came next were devastating: an 18-year-old gunman had opened fire at the school, killing 19 children and two adults, officials said.

The school district said the elementary school, where the student mission statement is "Live. Learn. Love. Lead," would remain closed for the final days of the school year.
