Fifteen people were killed, including 14 children and a teacher, in the shooting that mourned a school in Texas on Tuesday, May 24, announced the governor of the state. The shooter “killed, in an atrocious and senseless way, fourteen students and he killed a teacher”, said Greg Abbott, adding that the 18-year-old suspect also died in this tragedy.

The shooting occurred at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, a town between San Antonio and the Mexican border. A dozen other people were injured in the shooting, reported the American channel CNN.

Shootings in public places are almost daily in the United States and gun crime is on the rise in major cities such as New York, Chicago, Miami or San Francisco, especially since the 2020 pandemic. America has been mourned by a racist shooting that left ten African Americans dead in a supermarket in Buffalo, New York.
