The shooting of 19 students and two teachers in Uvalde, Texas, on Tuesday, by an 18-year-old man equipped with a semi-automatic AR-15 rifle, rekindled a national debate on the country’s gun laws.
The attack took place on Tuesday, May 24, 2022, at Robb Elementary School. The children who fell victim were primary school students between the ages of seven and ten.
The assailant first killed his grandmother, then went to school, where he opened fire on classmates. The other adult killed is a teacher. The US press says that her name was Eva Mireles.
