At Least 19 Children, 2 Teachers Killed in Texas Elementary School Shooting
May 26, 2022
At least 19 children and two teachers are dead after a shooting at Robb Elementary School Tuesday in Uvalde, Texas.
That staggering death toll makes it the deadliest school shooting since 2012, when a gunman shot and killed 26 people as young as 6 years old at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. And fatalities exceeded those in the 2018 attack at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., which left 17 dead.
Robb Elementary serves students in 2nd through 4th grade in the mostly Latino community of Uvalde, about 85 miles from San Antonio.
