Texas school shooter who killed 19 kids bought 2 assault rifles on 18th birthday

The Texas school shooter who gunned down 19 children and two adults in a horrific massacre yesterday (May 24) had only recently bought two assault rifles on his 18th birthday, it has been reported.

Evil Salvador Ramos went on a rampage inside the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, US using a legally bought rifle before he was shot dead.

Speaking to CNN, Texas State Sen. Roland Gutierrez said the monster had purchased two assault rifles on his 18th birthday.

The guns were legally purchased on May 17 and May 20 along with 375 rounds of ammunition that was purchased on May 18.

During his massacre, Ramos used only one rifle, the other he left in the truck he crashed near the school.

Since his death, many ex-friends of the dead murderer have spoken out about his violent nature.

A former co-worker of Ramos at Wendy's said that his aggressive streak was well known.

She said: "He would be very rude towards the girls sometimes, and one of the cooks, threatening them by asking, ‘Do you know who I am?’ And he would also send inappropriate texts to the ladies.

“At the park, there’d be videos of him trying to fight people with boxing gloves. He’d take them around with him.”

Ramos is said to have had history of egging people’s vehicles and shooting random strangers with a BB gun from a car.

Several former friends said the killer who was often bullied over his stutter and lisp, stopped going to school and was not going to graduate with the senior class this year.

Santos Valdez Jr., told The Washington Post that he used to be pals with Ramos until his behaviour began to “deteriorate.”

He said Ramos who once cut up his own face with a knife “just for fun” and pretended at first to have been scratched by a cat.

“Then he told me the truth, that he’d cut up his face with knives over and over,” Santos said.

Santos added that he had messaged Ramos on Instagram only a couple of hours before the shooting but his message remained unopened.

Before the attack, Ramos had warned "kids be scared" on TikTok.

On a now shut down TikTok account, Ramos creepily captioned a clip of a mobile game “Kids be scared IRL”.
