He then crashed the vehicle outside of the elementary school, where he encountered officials. But he managed to gain entry to the school via a back door, Abbott said.

The incident occurred just minutes after Ramos allegedly sent messages to a 15-year-old girl in Germany he befriended on a live-streaming platform, filling her in on his plans.

The massacre comes after the Uvalde Leader-News reported that four years ago this month, two teenagers were arrested after authorities discovered their plan to commit a mass shooting at nearby Morales Junior High.
