Salvador Ramos’ motive for killing 19 fourth graders and two teachers at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, remains unclear. The teen had first shot his grandmother in the head at home, then stole her vehicle and drove it to the school, crashing in a ditch before he walked into the classroom and opened fire randomly.
Ramos had only turned 18 on May 16th and allegedly bought two AR-15s with three hundred rounds of gun ammunition.
The guns were from a store in Uvalde, the Oasis Outback, just about a 10-minute drive from his grandmother’s, Celia Martinez, home. The 66-Year-Old had taken Ramos for dinner at Applebee’s to celebrate his birthday, and on Wednesday morning, Rolando Reyes [Celia’s husband] claimed neither of them was aware their grandson had bought the guns.
