Description: An 18-year-old gunman shot his grandmother before he continued his rampage at an elementary school in Texas, United States, on May 24, opening fire and killing 19 children and two adults. The attack in Uvalde – a small Texan community about an hour from the Mexican border – is the latest in a spree of deadly shootings in the country, where widespread horror at gun violence has failed to spur action to head off future killings.


Community members of the elementary school shooting victims and survivors have spoken out against gun violence in schools. Denise Vargas, sister of a police officer at the shooting, said his brother needs counseling after experiencing the horror at the scene.
