Salvador Ramos, the accused shooter in this week's massacre at Robb Elementary School, entered the building through an unlocked door, says a rep for the Texas Department of Public Safety.
- What's more is although the school usually has an armed security officer on duty, he was nowhere to be seen when Ramos strolled into the school wearing full body armor, carrying two AR-15-style rifles and a bag of ammo, says DPS regional director Victor Escalon. "There was not an officer, readily available, armed," Escalon says, leaving the 18-year-old shooter to enter the school "unobstructed." It's unclear why a security officer wasn't on duty.
- Nineteen students and two adults were killed in Tuesday's mass shooting. Ramos also died. Investigators have yet to determine the teen's motive, Escalon says.
- Did your school keep all of its doors locked?
