Mr Abbott said the shooter resided in the same county where the shooting took place, attended high school there and acted alone. He walked into elementary school with a handgun and possibly a rifle, the governor said.

It was not immediately clear whether the shooting took place in one or more classrooms, and authorities did not release the names or ages of the students killed or the teacher. At least three children – one 9-year-old and two 10-year-olds, including one in critical condition – have been taken to university healtha hospital in San Antonio, to be treated there.

Officials were investigating whether the shooter, whom they identified as Salvador Ramos, was targeting the school or had ended up there by chance, according to a law enforcement official, who requested the anonymity to describe the investigation, which he said was still ongoing. The shooter appears to have smashed a van through a school gate before heading inside, the official said. At least two law enforcement officials who tried to engage the shooter were injured in the shooting, neither seriously, the official said.

Marsha Espinosa, assistant secretary in the Department of Homeland Security, said at least one US Border Patrol agent was injured after responding to the shooting at Robb Elementary School. “Upon entering the building, officers and other law enforcement officers encountered gunfire from the subject, who was barricaded inside,” she wrote on Twitter.

Shortly before the massacre, a 66-year-old woman was shot dead in her home in Uvalde, the official said, and then airlifted to a hospital in San Antonio with gunshot wounds. The official said the woman appeared to be the shooter’s grandmother and had been shot before the school shooting; both shootings and the connection between them remained under investigation.

The shooting took place just after 11:30 a.m. For much of the afternoon, as news spread, angsty parents were ordered by the district to stay away from the school. “Please don’t pick up students at this time,” the school district instructed parents, directing them to a local civic center. “Students must be considered before they are entrusted to your care.”

Parents and loved ones rushed for information when news of a school shooter turned into the realization that so many children had been killed.
