A TIMELINE has revealed how a school shooter killed at least 19 kids in a 94-minute rampage.
Cops said Salvador Ramos killed “anyone in his way” as he opened fire inside Robb Elementary School, in Uvalde, Texas, before mobile morgue units rushed to the scene to identify the victims.
Police revealed that Ramos shot his own grandmother before heading to the school.
The pair reportedly had an argument about Ramos’ failure to graduate.
She was admitted to the hospital in a critical condition after being airlifted to San Antonio.
