Breaking News: 18 Shoot And 1 Teacher Dead At Texas Elementary School Mass Shooting Today

At least two children are reportedly dead and over a dozen more injured following a mass shooting at a Texas elementary school.

The Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District in Uvalde, Texas, confirmed on Tuesday, at approximately 1:17 p.m. local time, that there was an active shooter at Robb Elementary School. Reports eventually emerged that the shooting had taken place a block away from the school and that the shooter had fled to school afterward, barricading themselves in the building.

The suspect has since been taken into police custody alive, but details about their identity have not been disclosed. Multiple reports from the scene have indicated fatalities, with KSAT 12 reporter Leigh Waldman tweeting that at least two students were dead on arrival at Uvalde Memorial Hospital, though she could not confirm whether they had died from gunshot wounds.

The hospital also confirmed that 13 children had arrived at the facility for treatment, two of which were transported to hospitals in nearby San Antonio with another transfer pending. Another adult victim, 45, was also reportedly grazed by a bullet.

Fox News reporter Bill Meluga was also able to confirm multiple fatalities due to the shooting with local law enforcement.

Parents were urged to stay away from the scene as law enforcement dealt with the shooter. They were advised by the school district that they could reunite with their children at a nearby civic center once each student was accounted for.
