Texas School Shooting Victims—Full List of Teachers and Students Killed

A mass shooting at the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, on Tuesday, has become the deadliest school shooting since the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012, when Adam Lanza shot and killed 26 people.

Officials have said that at least 19 children were killed at Robb Elementary School, as well as at least two teachers. The death toll may rise as some parents have not been able to locate their children following the shooting.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott initially confirmed that 15 were dead after the shooter, Salvador Ramos, entered the school with a handgun and rifle early Tuesday afternoon. Texas state police later updated the death toll to 21. Abbott stated that the shooter is believed to be deceased as well.
