Salvador Ramos, the 18-year-old who shot and killed 19 students and two teachers and injured 17 others last Tuesday, entered Robb Elementary through the door the teacher had previously opened with a rock so she could carrying food from his car. . While doing so, the teacher saw Ramos crashing his truck in front of the school, so she rushed to the building to call 911 to report the crash, said Don Flanary, her San Antonio-based attorney. After returning outside while on the phone with 911, someone at the nearby funeral home shouted that Ramos had a gun, so she ran inside the school and closed the door. , thinking it would auto-lock, Flanary said. Surveillance video and audio also confirm that the teacher removed the rock holding the door open and closed it behind her, said an unnamed law enforcement official who reviewed the footage. Authorities are currently investigating why this door and other school doors were not locked on the day of the shooting.
