Twenty people are dead, including 18 children, a teacher, and the suspected gunman following an “active shooter” report at Robb Elementary school in Uvdale, Texas, according to Gov.

The state police updated the death toll on Tuesday evening, announcing that four more children were among the dead, for a total of 18.
Additionally, and as yet unconfirmed, Texas Governor Abbot said that “it is being reported that the subject shot his grandmother right before he went into the school.”

“Tonight, I ask the nation to pray” for the victims.
