Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “‘Complete evil’: New details of deadly Texas shooting released” – below is their description.
The gunman who opened fire at a primary school in Texas, killing 19 children and two teachers, barricaded himself in a classroom and “began shooting anyone that was in his way”, an official has said, as the attack fuels calls for gun control in the United States.
Lieutenant Chris Olivarez, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety, told NBC on Wednesday that the teenaged suspect entered a classroom at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde and began firing at students and staff.
Olivarez said law enforcement officials who first arrived at the school in Uvalde, a small community about 130km (80 miles) west of San Antonio, were met with gunfire and could not immediately enter the building.
So far, authorities in Texas have said the gunman’s motive is not yet clear.
