The mother of the Uvalde shooter says that “he was not a monster”, but that he could be “aggressive”

Adriana Reyes, the mother of the 18-year-old Salvador Rolando Ramos who killed 19 children and two of their teachers at the elementary school in Uvalde (Texas), has assured that her son “was not a monster”, although he could reach To be aggressive”.

“Sometimes I had an uncomfortable feeling, like ‘what are you doing?'” Reyes told ABC in an interview from his own home. “He could become aggressive if he really got angry (…). We all have anger, but some people have more than others,” he has said.

Reyes has assured that she was not aware that her son had bought weapons and has been dismayed by the children who died. “Those children… I have no words. I don’t know what to say about those poor children,” she has expressed through tears.

A day before her, it was her grandfather Rolando Reyes who also spoke for the ABC network. Like her mother, she claimed not to know that she bought weapons, which were purchased between May 17 and 20, according to the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE).

“I don’t like guns. I can’t be around guns. I hate when I see all the news, all those people getting shot,” said the grandfather, who acknowledged having a criminal record and therefore has no guns at home. .

Reyes described his grandson as “very quiet”, who argued with his grandmother that morning over a telephone bill, but notes that it was a “no significant” fight.

Days after turning 18 — the legal age to buy firearms in Texas and several other states — Ramos purchased two AR-15 assault rifles, one of which he broke into the Uvalde elementary school with. After barricading himself in one of the center’s classrooms, he executed his victims before he could be shot down by an off-duty Border Police guard.

The 19 children killed were between the ages of 8 and 10. It is already the deadliest armed attack on a school in US history. Another 17 people were injured, including three officers. Ramos’ grandmother, who was shot by her own grandson, is hospitalized and is in stable condition. She was the one who alerted the authorities.
