Following the horrific shooting at a Texas elementary school Tuesday the facts are still being collected on what drove the 18-year-old Salvador Ramos, identified as the shooter by authorities, to commit such a heinous act best described as “just evil.”
Ramos was said to have entered the grounds of Robb Elementary in Uvalde, Texas where he opened fire and continued to do so as he proceeded through the building. At least 19 students and two teachers were confirmed to have been killed according to Fox News, and Gov. Greg Abbott (R-Texas) stated the shooter was also dead and he is believed to have been acting alone.
The suspect’s social media accounts support claims made by fellow classmates and coworkers that Ramos was a loner. CNN reported that he worked at a local Wendy’s and the evening manager Adrian Mendes said he “kept to himself mostly.”
“He felt like the quiet type, the one who doesn’t say much. He didn’t really socialize with the other employees. He just worked, got paid, and came in to get his check,” Mendes added.
However, a former co-worker told something of a different story, according to The Daily Beast, recounting, “He would be very rude towards the girls sometimes, and one of the cooks, threatening them by asking, ‘Do you know who I am?’ And he would also send inappropriate texts to the ladies.”
She added Ramos had an “aggressive streak” and that, “At the park, there’d be videos of him trying to fight people with boxing gloves. He’d take them around with him.”
His social media accounts have been shut down to the public, but the Daily Mail reported that on his TikTok page his bio read “Kids be scared irl (in real life).” On his Instagram page, he allegedly had posted images of his firearms.
A former friend said, “He would like, not go to school…and he just, like, slowly dropped out. He barely came to school.”
That friend who played first-person shooters with Ramos on Xbox explained that four days prior to the tragic shooting, the suspect had sent him photos of his weapons and when asked why he had them, Ramos allegedly replied, “Don’t worry about it.”
The guns were said to have been bought recently on his 18th birthday, according to the Beast, and he had reportedly brought them into his conversation on Instagram with a woman in Los Angeles, CA.
“You gonna repost my gun pics,” he asked her.
“What your guns gotta do with me,” she asked before stating she was confused. She also told Ramos his behavior was “scary” especially since they barely knew each other.
Ramos messaged the woman that he had “a lil secret” and that he’d be telling her about it later the morning before the shooting. His final message to her was “ima air out.”
She explained that “He’s a stranger” and that she knew nothing about him when he decided to tag her in his photos before expressing her condolences to the victims, “I’m so sorry for the victims and their families I really don’t know what to say.”
The shooting was the worst of its kind since 2012 when 20-year-old Adam Lanza shot and killed 26, 20 of whom were aged between six and seven, at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn.
One Uvalde resident told The New York Times, “This is just evil. I’m afraid I’m going to know a lot of these kids that were killed.”
