On Tuesday, news broke that 14 children and a teacher were killed in a shooting at Robb Elementary School in Ovaldi, Texas.
The suspected gunman has been identified as an 18-year-old Uvald High School student and is now dead.
During a brief press conference, Uvald Unified Independent School District Police Chief Pete Arredondo told reporters, “The suspect acted alone during his heinous crime. Families are being notified and we are providing services to them.”
Governor Greg Abbott added: “He shot and killed 14 students in a horrific and incomprehensible manner and killed a teacher.
“When parents drop their kids off at school, they have every expectation of knowing that they will be able to pick up their kids when that school day is over. And there are families in mourning now,” Abbott continued. “The State of Texas is mourning with them over the fact that these parents will not be able to bring their children.”
The suspect allegedly shot and killed his grandmother before he shot the elementary school.
After hearing the news, many big names like Kylie Jenner, Khloe Kardashian, LeBron James, and Kris Evans have taken to social media to express their anger.
Kylie wrote on Instagram, “Another school shooting. Devastating. It breaks my heart for these families.”
Khloé added, “I cannot understand today’s tragedy in our country. 14 children are dead. How is this happening. My heart aches. I pray, I hope, I beg, I beg.. Please legislators, government officials, and leaders of our country, do something to protect our children.”
