Gunman killed 14 students, a Texas schoolteacher: governor

An 18-year-old gunman shot dead 14 children and a teacher at a Texas elementary school on Tuesday, the state governor said.

The assailant “shot and killed, horribly and incomprehensibly, 14 students and killed a teacher,” Gov. Greg Abbott told a news conference.

He said the suspect in the shooting, a local teenager, was also “dead”, adding that “it is believed that responding officers killed him.”

Uvalde Memorial Hospital said on Facebook that 13 children had been transferred there for treatment. It said two were dead on arrival.
