The Lone Star State was rocked on Tuesday afternoon as news of a horrific school shooting began to permeate the airwaves in the mid-afternoon.

The story is still developing, but authorities have released a number of key facts thus far.

A shooting at a Texas elementary school killed 14 children and one teacher Tuesday, Gov. Greg Abbott said.

Abbott identified the suspect as Salvador Ramas, a Uvalde resident, who is also dead.

The Texas Department of Public Safety and Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin told Fox News that the shooter – who ran to Robb Elementary School – had become barricaded inside. Uvalde Memorial Hospital confirmed that two people were brought to the hospital deceased.

Fifteen children were taken to the facility via ambulance or bus for treatment, a hospital spokesman told Fox News.

A number of critically injured patients were transported as well.

University Health in San Antonio said it received two patients – a child and a 66-year-old woman who is in critical condition. The condition of the child was not released. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has been briefed on the shooting.

No information has yet been released regarding the suspect and authorities still have plenty of investigating left to do.
