One of Shooting at Rob Elementary School The victim was fourth-grade teacher Eva Mireles. Lydia Martinez Delgado, Eva’s aunt, told Abc News that her niece had worked in the consolidated independent school district of Uwalde for 17 years. In a statement, she said
“I am furious that these shootings continue. These children are innocent. Rifles should not be easily accessible to everyone. This is my hometown, a small community with a population of less than 20,000. I never thought that this would happen to especially close people, ”she said. “All we can do is pray hard for our country, state, schools and especially everyone’s families.”
As we reported earlier, Eva is one of several victims whose lives were cut short at the hands of 18-year-old Salvador Ramos. Everyone spoke about the shooting, including President Joe Biden. Addressing the nation, he condemned the shooting, saying:
“I was hoping that when I became president, I wouldn’t have to do it again.” He added: “Another massacre. Uwalde, Texas. Primary school. Beautiful, innocent second, third and fourth graders. And how many dozens of little children who witnessed what happened – see how friends die, as if on the battlefield, for God’s sake. They will live with it for the rest of their lives. “
In addition to the victims, CBS News reports that customs and border guards exchanged guns with El Salvador, causing one agent to be shot in the head. Fortunately, the agent’s condition at the hospital is stable. This was announced by the spokesperson of the Ministry of Internal Security Marsha Catron Espinosa.
“U.S. Border Service agents have responded to a request from law enforcement for assistance in connection with the active shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uwald. At the entrance to the building, agents and other law enforcement officers faced shelling of the subject, who was barricaded inside.
Our thoughts continue to go to all the victims involved in this tragedy.
