Texas elementary school shooting live updates: Beto confronts Abbott

UVALDE, Texas – Gov. Greg Abbott said the gunman in a school shooting sent social media messages about his intentions half an hour before the deadly rampage.

Shortly after his revelation, former congressman Beto O’Rourke confronted Abbott over “doing nothing” about gun violence, adding a chaotic element to a Wednesday news conference addressing the attack at Robb Elementary School that left 19 children and two teachers dead Tuesday.

The gunman sent Facebook messages about 30 minutes before the rampage that he was going to shoot his grandmother, then that he had shot the woman, and finally that he was going to shoot up an elementary school, Abbott said. Facebook said the messages were private texts.

Abbott said there was no other “meaningful forewarning of this crime,” emphasized the need for mental health services and said of the victims’ families, “what they need now more than ever is our love.”
