Salvador Ramos shot and wounded his grandmother at her home on Tuesday morning, then left. Neighbors called police when she staggered outside, and they saw she had been shot in the face, Department of Public Safety spokesperson Travis Considine said.
Ramos then crashed his truck through a railing on the grounds at Robb Elementary School, and an Uvalde school district officer exchanged fire with him and was wounded.
The teen went inside and exchanged more gunfire with two arriving Uvalde police officers, who were still outside, Considine said. Those officers were also wounded.
Dillon Silva, whose nephew was in a nearby classroom, said students were watching the Disney movie ‘Moana’ when they heard several loud pops, and a bullet shattered a window. Moments later, their teacher saw the attacker stride past the door.
Ramos reportedly was obsessed with guns and worked at Wendy’s to save up $4,000 to purchase the weapons, ammunition, and a tactical-style vest.
A former co-worker of Ramos described the school shooter as a ‘rude, creepy and scruffy’ guy who she would keep her distance from because he felt unsafe.
Grace Cruz, also 18, told The Sun she worked with the ‘demented’ teen at the fast-food chain restaurant in Uvalde, Texas, located just minutes from Robb Elementary School.
She claimed Ramos openly talked about using the money he earned at Wendy’s to purchase guns and ammo, adding that he ‘suddenly quit’ weeks before Tuesday’s shooting.
He told us he was saving up money for guns and ammo. We would ask him: “Why would you spend your money on that, spend it on a car or something useful,”‘ Cruz said. ‘I guess once he got enough money, he quit and stopped showing up.’
According to a fourth-grader who survived the attack, the gunman who killed 21 people told a classroom of children that “it’s time to die,” according to a fourth-grader who survived the attack.
The chilling words allegedly uttered by Ramos inside Robb Elementary on Tuesday were revealed by a 9-year-old who spoke to KENS 5, describing how he hid under a table during the shooting rampage.
“He shot the next person’s door. We have a door in the middle. He opened it. He came in and he crouched a little bit and he said, ‘It’s time to die,’” the student told the station. “When he shot, it was very loud and it hurt my ear.”
And one man survived a bullet that grazed his baseball cap.
The Daily Mail reported on the close call for one border patrol agent:
Customs and Border Patrol have shared a dramatic photo of a bullet-damaged hat worn by an agent during the shootout with Texas elementary school mass murderer Salvador Ramos.
The black and white cap can be seen torn to shreds where the bullet grazed the unknown agent’s head during the shootout with Ramos, 18, on Tuesday.
According to Fox News, Ramos reportedly shot at the agent as he entered the barricaded room with other agents.
Ramos opened fire in a horrific killing spree at Robb Elementary School on Tuesday after shooting his grandmother, with whom he lived.
He had bought two AR-15 assault rifles, bragged about them on social media, and suggested he would commit an atrocity before the deadly attack.
His grandfather revealed the family had no idea he legally purchased the two weapons last week earlier on Wednesday.
Cruz said Ramos worked in the Wendy’s drive-thru and was responsible for handing out orders to customers; however, she claims he wasn’t very good at his job.
She claims customers would complain about him and argued he had an unkept appearance about him.
‘He didn’t smell, but he was definitely scruffy. Something was off about him. I didn’t feel safe around him, so I always kept my distance even though we worked the same hours,’ she told The Sun.
‘He quit just two weeks ago, but there were a couple of times before that where he almost got fired for being rude.’
Cruz also alleged that Ramos would brag about his plans to spend his earnings on guns and stated she thought he suffered from mental illness.

‘He had mental problems, emotional problems, personal problems, every type of problem,’ she said.
‘He would be very rude towards the girls sometimes, and one of the cooks, threatening them by asking, ‘Do you know who I am?” the young woman, who worked with Ramos until March, told The Daily Beast. ‘And he would also send inappropriate texts to the ladies.’
She also claimed he would engage in fights at local parks.
‘At the park, there’d be videos of him trying to fight people with boxing gloves. He’d take them around with him,’ she added.
