What Happened In The Rob Elementary School On May 24?
Salvador Rolando Ramos argued with her grandmother on May 24, 2022, then shot her. However, before moving out of the house, he messaged a 15-year-old girl he met online regarding the shooting of her grandmother and a plan to open fire in the Rob Elementary School.
Salvador was also a student of Rob Elementary School who didn’t have any criminal records. But because of his health problems, his classmates picked on him a lot in school. And even his name was terminated from the school, which looks to be a possible reason for the outrage.
With this, he left his home and barged his truck into the concrete ditch outside the school. He climbed the school’s fence and went straight to the short hallways to reach classrooms 111 and 112.
As soon as he entered the classrooms, he started open firing, which resulted in the killing of 19 students along with two teachers. Moreover, the survivors of the attacks claimed that he rhymed sad songs while he was shooting the students.
As soon as the news spread regarding the open firing, police started investigating and entered the school building with all the protection, including bulletproof vests, guns, and more. Furthermore, the school even declared a lockdown through a Facebook post too.
Salvador Rolando Ramos was killed after killing 21 people and hiding from the police for almost an hour. However, the massacre left many wounded and killed, resulting in a tragedy for everyone.
Now, the school has been permanently closed and demolished to erase the massacre’s memory.
