The Tuesday school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, left 19 children and two teachers dead before the authorities stormed the school and killed the gunman

In an ironically tragic twist of fate, one of the uniformed responders to the scene, Felix Rubio, a deputy sheriff also lost his daughter to the senseless tragedy.

The massacre took place just days before the end of the school year for Robb Elementary School, and what was an exciting few days have turned into tragedy.

Several reports have come forward, showing how parents begged the authorities to storm the school when gunshots began to be heard.

Sadly, it was only after the gunshots subsided that the police did go in, shooting the suspect dead. By that time, many young lives had been lost.

More than nine bodies of victims have been handed over to their grieving families, and more will be given today.

At a news conference with officials, Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott confirmed one of the young children who was killed in the massacre was a sheriff's deputy’s daughter.

Many celebrities, including Texan Matthew McConaughey, have spoken out against this senseless tragedy as well, calling for stronger gun control laws.

President Joe Biden and VP Kamala Harris have also made statements, calling for better gun control.
