HORROR posts by suspected Texas school gunner Salvador Ramos feature guns and a sinister warning to kids to “be scared” in real life.
Ramos, who was named by Gov. Greg Abbott as the shooter in the Robb Elementary school massacre, reportedly shot his grandmother and drove his car into an accident before killing 19 students and two teachers.
Texas State Senator Roland Gutierrez, speaking to CNN, mentioned Ramos’ threatening social media posts after explaining that the suspect bought the guns used in the mass shooting on his 18th birthday in the Uvalde area.
Ramos’ TikTok bio read: “Kids are scared IRL [in real life].”
The account, which only showed video of a mobile game, was shut down after the shooting.
Both of Ramos’ alleged social media accounts on TikTok and Instagram featured the same photo and the line “TheBiggestOpp.”
The suspect also reportedly messaged a girl he didn’t know on Instagram and tagged her in a photo of his guns, possibly alluding to the shooting.
“You will repost my gun pics,” the shooter wrote.
The person he tagged, who claims not to know the shooter and doesn’t live in Texas, asked, “What do your guns have to do with me?”
The shooter texts back, “Just wanted to tag you.”
Throughout the conversation, which the Instagram user provided through screenshots, the shooter kept sending vague messages.
“I’m in,” he writes without any explanation. He then responded with “I’ll tell you before 11am” when the user asked what his original message meant.
“I’ll text you in an hour.
“But you have to react. i have a little secret I want to tell you”
In a statement posted to the user’s story, they wrote, “The only reason I replied to him was because I was scared of him.
“I wish I’d stayed awake to at least try to convince him not to commit his crime of which I was unaware.
“I don’t know him and I don’t even live in Texas.”
Ramos’ social media profiles were reportedly removed after the shooting.
A number of copycat profiles were created, circulating Ramos’ photos of his guns and magazines.
DETAILS WILL CONTINUE
Senator Gutierrez told CNN that Ramos is from North Dakota and is a high school student, although it’s unclear if he currently attends the school in Uvalde.
The suspected gunman was also reportedly heavily armed and wearing a bulletproof vest at the time the school was attacked.
Abbott said in an initial update that Ramos shot dead more than a dozen people, mostly children, “in an appalling, incomprehensible manner.”
Citing preliminary reports, Abbott said Ramos was killed by responding officers.
Authorities say they believe Ramos acted alone, although a motive for the shooting is unknown.
FIRST SACRIFICE CALLED
The names of the victims of the shooting have surfaced in the hours following the horrific attack.
Eva Mireles was a fourth grade teacher at the elementary school. Her aunt Lydia Martinez Delgado shared photos of the woman on Facebook.
“I am angry that these shootings are continuing. These children are innocent. Guns shouldn’t be easily accessible to everyone. This is my hometown, a small community of less than 20,000 people,” Delgado said in a statement, per ABC.
“I never thought this would happen to especially loved ones… All we can do is pray hard for our country, our state, our schools and especially for everyone’s families.”
According to the Uvalde CISD website, Mireles has been an educator for 17 years. She was married to a UCISD officer, had a daughter and three pets.
Xavier Lopez was also named by family members who started a GoFundMe to help cover the boy’s funeral expenses.
Reports of gunfire fired were received at 11:32 a.m., according to Texas officials.
Ramos was reportedly shot dead in a standoff as police responded to calls from an active gunman at Robb Elementary School.
Senator Gutierrez confirmed that Ramos shot his grandmother before he went to elementary school. His grandmother is said to be “still hanging” in a San Antonio hospital.
Ramos reportedly abandoned his vehicle and entered the elementary school with a handgun. He may also have been carrying a rifle, according to Governor Abbott.
Uvalde Memorial Hospital confirmed it has received 13 children for treatment. Two students who arrived at UMH died upon arrival, the hospital said.
Officers are working and processing the scene until late Tuesday.
