Yesterday, tragedy struck Robb Elementary School as nineteen schoolchildren, and two teachers were shot and killed by 18-year-old Salvador Ramos.
Ramos shot his grandmother during an argument before going to the Elementary school and opening fire on a classroom full of children and their teachers.
Ramos reportedly hinted that he was going to carry out the attack hours before it occurred, tagging a stranger on Facebook with pictures of guns and saying that he had a ‘little secret’ to tell them.
Amongst the tragedy that occurred at the school, one tale of heroism emerged as a 10-year-old girl attempted to call 911 before Ramos opened fire on her classroom.
She was shot dead by Ramos while dialing the number on her phone.
The Daily Mail Reports–
“Among those shot dead by the callous killer yesterday was 10-year-old girl who was phoning 911 when he opened fire.
Amerie Jo Garza, a fourth grader at Robb Elementary in the city Uvalde, Texas, was killed in cold blood Tuesday morning by 18-year-old ‘loner’ Salvador Ramos, who strode into the school carrying a handgun and a rifle before opening fire on classrooms full of children in an attack that also killed two teachers.
Berlinda Irene Arreola, Amerie’s grandmother, said that Ramos told the class ‘you’re going to die’ before he began his massacre – shooting her granddaughter dead as she tried to call 911. Amerie was sat next to her best friend who was left ‘covered in her blood’, Berlinda told the Daily Beast.
‘So the gunman went in and he told the children, “You’re going to die.” And [Amerie] had her phone and she called 911. And instead of grabbing it and breaking it or taking it from her, he shot her. She was sitting right next to her best friend. Her best friend was covered in her blood,’ Berlinda said.”
