President Biden, First Lady Jill to Visit Uvalde, Texas This Week
Yesterday, President Biden announced he and First Lady Jill will be taking a trip to Texas in the upcoming days. On their trip, they’ll meet with the families of the 19 children and two teachers who were killed in the shooting at Robb Elementary School on Tuesday. Details on how the attack happened and what led up to the gunman firing the initial shots are still being released by law enforcement and more is being learned about the crime. The shooting is the deadliest in almost a decade after 18 year old gunman Salvador Ramos shot his grandmother, drove to the elementary school, forced his way inside to a classroom where he barricaded himself in and opened fire at a group of kids. Officers forced their way into that classroom and a Border Patrol officer fatally shot the gunman.
