At least 19 students and two teachers were killed Tuesday in the Uvalde, Texas, massacre at Robb Elementary School.

Salvador Ramos, 18, shot and wounded his 66-year-old grandmother at their home before heading to the school with a semi-automatic rifle, legally purchased days earlier, another rifle and a handgun, authorities said.

After crashing the truck he was driving near the school, Ramos took one of the rifles and the handgun and approached the school, where he reportedly shot at responding police officers before entering the building and opening fire after barricading himself inside a classroom.

In addition to the 21 people killed, 17 others were wounded, including two responding officers.

Authorities ultimately shot and killed the suspected gunman after forcing their way inside.
