The face behind one of the most brutal school shootings in the country has been revealed. The gunman who fatally shot at least 19 children and two adults at a Texas elementary school was identified Tuesday afternoon as Salvador Ramos.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced Ramos as the shooter during an emergency announcement and mentioned that he was shot and killed by cops responding to the scene.

Law enforcement sources also told Abbott that Ramos shot his grandmother before traveling to the school and unleashing terror. Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin told Fox News that during the shooting, Ramos became barricaded inside the elementary school. An agent with the Border Patrol Tactical Unit (BORTAC), is believed to have shot and killed the suspected gunman. Two officers were shot and wounded on the scene but were expected to survive.

Coming to his social media, Ramos allegedly posted disturbing images online before the shooting, and apparently messaged a woman about his plans before he carried out the deadly attack. An Instagram account allegedly connected to Ramos featured disturbing photos, including one showing a high-capacity magazine. The Instagram account has since been taken down.

The same account allegedly sent alarming messages to a woman before the deadly attack. The first message, sent on May 12, asked, “You gonna repost my gun pics?” The woman was tagged in photos showing guns.

The woman continued to message the account allegedly connected to Ramos even though she said she did not know him. In one message, she described the exchange as “scary.” She then continued, “I barely know you and u tag me in a picture with some guns.” The account sent a final message to the woman on Tuesday morning: “Ima air out.” Following the attack, the woman posted that she did not know the alleged shooter and that she does not live in Texas. She said she only corresponded with the account because she was afraid. She then expressed sympathy for the victims and their families.
