According to KSAT, police said they were looking for a juvenile suspect in connection with the shooting. Police said they know the suspect’s name but did not release it. Officers are also assuring the community that this is not a “dangerous situation for the general public”.
Texas DPS shared on Twitter that they are working with Uvalde Police and the Sheriff’s Office on the investigation.
The recent shooting comes more than three months after a gunman opened fire at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, killing 19 students and two teachers. The current crime scene is just 1.5 miles from where the tragedy took place.
Since the mass shooting in May, changes have been made to security at CISD Uvalde.
For example, DPS soldiers will now be stationed outside schools. Students at Robb Elementary will not be returning to campus as the school is about to be torn down.
Survivors will instead attend different schools in the district.
