Haunting direct family link between Texas shooter Salvador Ramos and elementary school he targeted revealed

THE haunting first direct link between Texas shooter Salvador Ramos and the elementary school he targeted has been revealed.

Ramos – the 18-year-old gunman who massacred 19 children and two teachers at Robb Elementary School, Uvalde – shot his grandmother in the face before his deadly rampage on May 24, 2022.


One week after the tragic incident, a close friend of Ramos' family has disclosed one major link between the teen's grandmother Celia "Sally" Martinez Gonzales and the targeted elementary school, according to the New York Post.

The source told the news outlet that Gonzales was employed by the school as a teacher's aide.

The family friend, who requested not to be identified, disclosed where Ramos' grandmother worked, the source is unsure why the teen decided to unleash a hail of bullets inside the school.

"His grandmother worked in one of those classrooms a lot of the time," the anonymous friend told The Post.

Ramos had been living with his grandparents, Reyes and Gonzales, and had quit his job at a nearby Wendy's, his grandfather said.

Reyes recounted to The Post how Gonzales told Ramos he needed toget his own phone line on the morning of the school shooting,

The grandfather explained: "My wife had put him on her phone bill …added a phone line for him.

"My wife told him, 'It’s time that you get our own line.'"

Aside from that, Reyes told ABC News there were no signs the morning of the shooting that anything unusual was going to happen.

Shot in the face

Two days after the shooting, Reyes told The Post that his wife is still on the mend in stable condition at a San Antonio hospital.

Ramos shot his grandmother in the face before carrying out the Robb Elementary School massacre.

The troubled teen fled the incident with his grandmother in her pickup truck, crashing the vehicle outside of the elementary school before allegedly barricading himself in a fourth-grade classroom and opening fire.

When Ali Bradley, an independent journalist, visited the home where Ramos gunned down his grandmother, Reyes revealed the inside of his blood-splattered home.

"There's blood all over," he said.

"'There was a pool of blood here," Reyes said, adding that the mess was cleaned up by his sister and a friend of his.

Reyes, 74, who was not home at the time of the shooting, said there were no bullet holes in the house.

He told Bradley that his wife was pierced with a bullet that went through the side of her cheek and came out under her ear.

FAMILY HAD 'NO IDEA'

Reyes, 74, said the family had no idea that Ramos, 18, had purchased weapons in the days leading up to the attack.

Ramos' grandfather also said that his grandson was a "quiet teenager" who often spent time alone in his bedroom.

"I didn't know he had weapons. If I had known, I would have reported it," Rolando Reyes told ABC News.

Ramos' grandfather said that this past year, the teen "didn't go to school" and did not graduate.

"You would try to tell him, but kids nowadays, they think they know everything.
