According to media reports, several people have died after being shot at an elementary school in the US state of Texas. The US broadcaster ABC initially reported two dead and around a dozen injured. It has now been confirmed: 14 students and one teacher are dead.
The attacker was also dead, said Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Tuesday. The attack happened at an elementary school in the small town of Uvalde, 135 kilometers west of San Antonio.
Just over a week ago, a gunman with an assault rifle opened fire in a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, killing 13 people. The 18-year-old suspect was arrested at the scene. According to investigators, the act was racially motivated – 11 of the 13 victims were black. (SDA)
