Tuesday’s mass shooting is a series of recent incidents and comes just days after a gunman opened fire on passersby in a Chicago area, killing two.

1. Salvador Ramos, an 18-year-old resident of Uvalde, who is believed to be armed with a handgun and rifle, opened fire on children and staff at Rob Elementary School in the US city of Texas on Tuesday morning. At least 19 students and three adults died in the incident.

2. Salvador Ramos allegedly shot his grandmother before attending Rob Elementary School in Uvalde.

3. Texas Governor Greg Abbott said he would “fully investigate” the incident. “I have directed the Texas Department of Public Security and the Texas Rangers to work with local law enforcement to investigate this crime thoroughly. The Texas Division of Emergency Management is charged with providing local officials with all the resources they need to respond to this tragedy. Because the state of Texas works to make sure the community has what it needs to heal,” he said.

4. Officials reported that Salvador Ramos was shot dead by officers who responded after the tragedy. He said Ramos went to a high school in the same district.

5. Two officers were also injured in a brief exchange of fire with Salvador.

6. US President Joe Biden made an emotional call for new restrictions on firearms. “When in the name of God are we going to stand in front of the gun lobby?” Biden said this at the White House shortly after returning from a five-day trip to Asia.

7. Congress member Marjorie Taylor Green outrightly rejected the new gun laws. “Our nation needs to consider the state of mental health today seriously,” the Republican tweeted.

8. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez criticized Republicans for opposing gun-control despite mass shootings in the US.

9. Former US President Barack Obama issued a statement on Twitter Tuesday night calling for action to stop further gun violence. “Across the country, parents are putting their kids to bed, reading stories, singing lullabies – and in the back of their minds, they worry about what might happen tomorrow when they take their kids to school. Will leave or take them. Grocery store or any other public place. This is a long time for action, for any action,” he said.

10. US Vice President Kamala Harris called for a policy change to ensure this never happens again. “As a nation, we must have the courage to act and understand the nexus between fair and sensible public policy so that this never happens again,” Harris said.
