Fears of copycat Texas school shooters rise after another teen with AR-15 rifle was arrested after massacre

Fears of copycat shooters following the Texas massacre are mounting after another teen was arrested with an AR-15-style rifle.

Several near misses occurred across the country following Salvador Ramos’ killing spree at Robb Elementary School, which killed 19 students and two teachers and injured more than a dozen others.

Ramos is said to have shot his grandmother before fleeing the scene in her pickup truck, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said Wednesday.

He then crashed the vehicle outside of the elementary school, where he encountered officers. But he managed to get into the school through a back door, Abbott said.

The incident came just minutes after Ramos allegedly sent messages to a 15-year-old girl in Germany whom he befriended on a live streaming platform, informing her of his plans.

The massacre came after Uvalde Leader-News reported that two teenagers were arrested four years ago this month after authorities discovered their plot to carry out a mass shooting at nearby Morales Junior High.

TEXAS STUDENT ARRESTED

A student was arrested Wednesday after he was seen walking toward Berkner High School with what he suspected was a gun.

Richardson Police responded to the scene. A student at Berkner High School has been identified as the suspect.

Though he wasn’t carrying a rifle, police found an AK-47-style handgun and AR-15 rifle in his car, according to a local ABC News affiliate.

The unidentified student was reportedly charged with illegally carrying guns in a gun-free school zone.

The high school and a nearby elementary school were on lockdown during the incident.

“The Richardson Police Department wishes to remind the public of the importance of reporting suspicious activity as we recognize the vigilant awareness and actions of the individual who originally called 911 to alert law enforcement,” the said Richardson Police Department.

The situation was resolved by 10:30 a.m. No shots were fired and no students were injured.

Manhunt for Maryland man

A Maryland man threatened violence against an elementary school and a local business on May 23.

A manhunt for Earl Benjamin Washington Jr. was underway after the threats surfaced.

Washington reportedly called Gale Bailey Elementary School and an area business that made the threats Monday.

“The calls at the specific locations are to people he knows and are believed to be domestic,” the Charles County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

Officials had asked for the public’s help in locating Washington after an arrest warrant was issued for him.

Washington was arrested in St. Mary’s County on Wednesday morning.

The sheriff’s office said more officers will be at Gale-Bailey Elementary this week “as a precaution.”

“We are grateful that this incident did not lead to the tragedy experienced by districts, including today’s tragic and senseless mass shooting at Robb Elementary in Uvalde, Texas,” the school district said.

“This is due in large part to the courage and awareness of the students who came forward today and alerted Kemble staff.”
