Who is Salvador Romas? Suspect identified in shooting at Uvalde Primary School

Texas Governor Greg Abbot identified the man accused of fatally shooting 15 people at a primary school in Uvalde as an 18-year-old Salvadoran Roma on Tuesday.

Romas was a resident of Uvalde. He allegedly opened fire at the school, fatally shooting 14 students and a teacher, Abbot said during a news conference.

“He left his vehicle and entered Robb Elementary School in Uvalde with a pistol – and he might have had a rifle too, but that’s not worrying just yet,” Abbott said. “He shot 14 students and killed a teacher in a horrific, incomprehensible manner.”
