Mireles’ aunt, Lydia Martínez Delgado, released a statement.

“I am furious that these shootings continue. these children are innocent. Rifles shouldn’t be readily available to everyone. This is my hometown, a small community of less than 20,000 people. I never imagined this would happen especially to loved ones…All we can do is pray hard for our country, state, schools and especially for everyone’s families.’

A father on Twitter who claimed Mireles taught his daughter paid tribute.

‘My daughter’s beautiful teacher was the teacher who was murdered in Uvalde, TX,’ wrote a woman who called herself ‘Audrey’.

‘Eva (Mrs. Mireles) taught Gabby in elementary school. She was a beautiful person and a dedicated teacher. She believed in Gabby and did her best to teach her as you can see below. There are no words.’

The gunman was shot and killed by a heroic Border Patrol agent who ran into the school with a tactical support team and killed him while he was pinned at a barricade and exchanging gunfire with other Texas law enforcement officers.

The gunman, Salvador Ramos, who was wearing a bulletproof vest and equipped with a pistol and possibly a rifle, shot his grandmother before entering the school and opening fire, Gov. Greg Abbott said.

The grandmother was airlifted to hospital and her condition was unknown.

One of the teachers was named by her family as Eva Mireles, 44 years old. The second has not been named.

Ramos, who was born in North Dakota but lived in Uvalde, was a student at Uvalde High School, Abbott said.

Ramos’ young victims were between the ages of seven and 11, CNN’s Ed Lavandera reported.

On Tuesday night, the father of 10-year-old Annabelle Guadalupe Rodriguez said she was still missing.

“He horribly and incomprehensibly shot and killed 14 students and killed a teacher,” Abbott told a news conference. The death toll was later revised to 18 children.

‘There are families who are in mourning right now. And the state of Texas mourns them.

It was the deadliest incident since 14 high school students and three adult employees were killed in Parkland, Florida in 2018, and the worst at an elementary school since the Sandy Hook shooting in Connecticut in 2012, which killed 20 children and six employees.

“The idea that an 18-year-old kid can walk into a gun store and buy two assault weapons is just wrong,” Joe Biden said, addressing the country from the White House Tuesday night.

“As a nation, we have to ask ourselves: when in God’s name are we going to stand up to the gun lobby?”

He added: ‘Why are we willing to live with this carnage? Why do we keep letting this happen? Where in God’s name is our backbone?

Ramos messaged a woman he knew on Instagram and tagged her in a photo of the guns.

‘You’re going to repost my gun photos,’ @sal8dor_ DMed the girl on May 12.

“What do your guns have to do with me?” he replied on Friday.

‘I just wanted to tag you,’ he said back.

Then at 5:43am on Tuesday, @salv8dor_ messaged him and said, ‘I’m ready.’

The girl asked ‘about what’ to which he replied: ‘I’ll tell you before 11 o’clock’.

He said he would text her in an hour and urged her to reply.

“I have a little secret I want to tell you,” she texted with a smiley face emoji covering her mouth.

“Appreciate that I tagged you,” she wrote.

She replied: ‘No, it’s just scary,’ adding: ‘I barely know you and you tag me in a picture with some guns?’

His last message at 9:16 am on Tuesday was ‘Ima air out’.

The shooting started around 11:32 a.m.

Robb Elementary School, which has an enrollment of 600 students, is located in the city of Uvalde, the hometown of Matthew McConaughey, 60 miles east of the Mexican border and 80 miles west of San Antonio.

The photos show a van that crashed outside the school, which Abbott says Ramos abandoned before entering the school.

He was involved in a shootout with border patrol agents who arrived at the scene. One of the officers was injured, but he is expected to survive.

In addition, thirteen children are being treated in the Uvalde Memorial emergency room, as well as a 45-year-old man who suffered a ‘chafing’.

University Health San Antonio also confirmed that they received a boy whose condition is currently unknown and a 66-year-old woman who is in critical condition.

Biden, who flew home from Japan on Tuesday, addressed the nation from the Roosevelt Room of the White House at 8:45 p.m. Air Force One touched down just before 7 p.m.

‘I was hoping, when I became president, I wouldn’t have to do this. Again. Another massacre,” said a visibly emotional Biden.

Speaking from the Roosevelt Room of the White House with First Lady Jill Biden dressed in black at his side, the president said: ‘Uvalde, Texas. an elementary school Beautiful innocents, second, third, fourth grade. And how many dozens of little kids who witnessed what happened, watched their friends die like they were on a battlefield, for God’s sake?’

He took a moment to empathize with the parents who would never see their young children again after Tuesday.

‘Parents will never be the same. Losing a child is like having a piece of your soul ripped out,” said the president, who lost his son Beau Biden to brain cancer in 2015.

‘There is an emptiness in your chest that feels like you are being sucked into it. And he will never be able to get out. Suffocating. And it’s never the same. It is the sentiment shared by siblings and grandparents and members of the family and community left behind.’

He lamented that “so many crushed spirits” were left to mourn the more than a dozen victims.

‘So tonight, I asked the nation to pray for them. Give the parents and siblings the strength in the darkness that they feel right now.’
