The author of the shooting that killed 19 children and two dead teachers in a school in Uvalde (Texas, USA) warned about 15 minutes earlier in a Facebook message that he was about to shoot in a school, reported this Wednesday the state governor.

In a press conference, Republican Greg Abbott explained that approximately half an hour before the shooting, Salvador Ramos - as the attacker has been identified - wrote on Facebook that he was going to shoot his grandmother.

A few minutes later, he published another text in which he said that he had already shot his grandmother -who was seriously injured-, and in a third message, published 15 minutes before the massacre at the school, he indicated that he was preparing to attack a school .

On the other hand, Governor Abbott explained that, in addition to the 21 dead, there are 17 injured in this event, three of them Police officers, although there is no fear for their lives.

The Texan governor has also detailed that the weapon used by Ramos was an AR15 rifle, and that, as far as is known to date, the young man had no criminal record, nor a history of mental disorders.

The attacker was killed by a Texas Border Patrol agent.
