Texas school shooter was bullied because of the clothes he wore and because his family was poor

A former classmate of the shooter at school in Texas said Salvador Ramos was bullied at school because of his clothes and because his family was poor.

The former classmate, who asked not to be identified, said CNN he and 18-year-old Ramos were somewhat ‘close’ and used to play Xbox together.

He said Ramos started showing up less and less in class because other kids bullied him because of his clothes and his family’s financial situation.

‘He, like, wouldn’t go to school…and just, like, dropped out slowly. He barely came to school,’ the friend said.

After the North Dakota native graduated from high school, the friend said they became even more distant from each other, but would occasionally message each other on Xbox.

Ramos got a job at a local Wendy’s, where his colleagues remembered him as a quiet, antisocial man.

“He was texting me here and there,” he said.

Four days before Tuesday’s shooting, Ramos reportedly sent his friend an AR photo and a backpack filled with 5.56 bullets.

Four days before the shooting, Ramos reportedly sent his friend photos of his guns and ammunition. When asked why he had it, Ramos reportedly replied: ‘Don’t worry about it.’

‘[He had] probably like seven [magazines],’ he said. “I was like, ‘Brother, why do you have this?’ and he said, “Don’t worry about it.”

The school shooter, who is originally from North Dakota and had recently moved to Texas, had reportedly purchased two rifles on his 18th birthday, which was days ago, the daily beast informed.

Under a new Texas law passed in September, people ages 18 to 21 could buy guns if they had a protection order, because they were at risk of family violence, stalking, prostitution or sex trafficking.

The law also eliminated the requirement for a permit for a firearm. The rifles were already allowed in Texas without a license.

Ramos also told his friend that “he looked very different now.”

‘You wouldn’t recognize me’, he texted me less than a week ago.

Ramos’ social media was filled with photos of his new guns, which he bought for his 18th birthday, state Sen. Roland Gutierrez said.

Ramos also messaged a Los Angeles woman on May 12 on Instagram, tagging her in a photo of the guns.

‘You’re going to repost my gun photos,’ @sal8dor_ sent him a direct message.

His social networks were filled with new rifles, which he bought on his 18th birthday.

“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.

The woman reacted with horror when she found out what she had done.

“He’s a stranger, I don’t know anything about him, he decided to tag me in his gun post,” she wrote.

“I’m so sorry for the victims and their families. I really don’t know what to say.”

She then added, “The only reason I answered him was because I was scared of him. I wish I had stayed up to at least try to talk him out of committing his crime.” She didn’t know.

When asked by an Instagram user if she was his girlfriend, she replied: “I don’t know him and I don’t even live in Texas.”

He largely retired and took the job at Wendy’s, where his co-workers remember him as quiet.

Adrian Mendes, Wendy’s night manager, said Ramos was “mostly keeping to himself.”

‘He felt like the quiet guy, the one who doesn’t say much. He didn’t really socialize with the other employees,” Mendes told CNN.

‘He just worked, got paid and came for his check.’

Mendes said he didn’t know Ramos well, he was already employed when Mendes started in February, and he didn’t see him most of the time because they were on different shifts.

Ramos worked from 11 am to 4 or 5 pm, five days a week.

Ramos was shot and killed by police at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, after killing 21 people.
