Basketball superstar LeBron James reacted enthusiastically to the Texas massacre in which a teenage massacre killed 14 students and an elementary school teacher.
Authorities said the suspect, Salvador Rojas, 18, also died after being shot and killed by police officers at the scene of the violence in Yuvalde, Texas on Tuesday.
“My thoughts and prayers are reaching families who have lost loved ones and were injured at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas! Man like when enough is enough!!! These are children and we continue to harm them at school. Seriously like “AT SCHOOL,” who I think is the safest!” tweeted the Los Angeles Lakers.
The LeBron James Family Foundation helped open the “I Promise School”, a public elementary school in his hometown of Akron, Ohio in 2018.
Officials said the shooter entered Rob Elementary School in Uvalde, 85 miles west of San Antionio, in possession of a pistol and rifle before shooting.
Authorities did not reveal a motive for the shooting, but said the suspect acted alone.
“He shot and killed 14 students and killed a teacher in a horrific and incomprehensible manner,” Texas Governor Greg Abbott said.
It is the deadliest school shooting in Texas four years ago, when a gunman killed 10 people at Santa Fe High School in Houston.
The country’s most recent mass shooting took place in Buffalo a week after the shootings of 10 people that officials call a racist attack.
California Governor Gavin Newsom also tweeted, condemning politicians for doing nothing on the issue of terrorism and gun control.
“14 children and teachers have died. Another shoot. And GOP wouldn’t do a damn thing about it. If we can’t keep our children safe, who are we? This can be prevented. Our inaction is a choice. We need national, inclusive and common-sense gun safety now,” he wrote.
