He also allegedly shot his grandmother before entering the school, Greg Abbott said, via ABC 13.

At this time, the motive behind the school shooting is unclear, and so are details surrounding Ramos’ personal life.

In a press conference, Abbott said the shooter, “shot and killed horrifically and incomprehensibly 14 students and killed a teacher,” adding that he had access to a handgun and possibly a rifle.

“When parents drop their kids off at school, they have every expectation to know that they’re going to be able to pick their child up when that school day ends. And there are families who are in mourning right now,” Abbott added, via ABC News.

“The state of Texas is in mourning with them for the reality that these parents are not going to be able to pick up their children.”

The shooting is reportedly the deadliest school shooting in Texas history and happened four years after a gunman fatally shot 10 people at Santa Fe High School in the Houston area, according to 9News.

The shooting also came just days after ten people were killed during a mass shooting at a Tops Friendly Markets store in Buffalo, NY.
