BREAKING: ‘Elite’ And Brave Border Patrol Agent Credited With Killing Texas School Mass Shooter; Here’s How it Happened

An elite U.S. Border Patrol agent is being credited with killing the Gunman in Uvalde, Texas on Tuesday. The gunman is responsible for the deadly mass shooting at an elementary school.

The Associated Press received this report from a law enforcement official that this brave agent rushed into Robb Elementary School without waiting for other law enforcement backup and shot and killed the gunman who barricaded himself.

The agent has yet to be identified as of publishing this article. According to the AP source, the brave agent was wounded and was able to walk out of the school.

According to Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin, Border Patrol sources told him that the agent was part of an “elite” tactical unit of the Border Patrol and he responded to the scene with a team while state and local law enforcement officials were engaging with the shooter.

“I’m told that that BORTAC agent went in with his technical group with other agents. They formed a stocking maneuver while Texas law enforcement was engaged with the shooter, who was barricaded,” Melugin reported on Fox News. “They came in from opposite sides. The BORTAC agent ended up exchanging gunfire with the shooter, killed the shooter, and I am told that the agent was injured in his leg. They are trying to figure out if he was shot in the leg or hit by shrapnel.” He added.

“U.S. Border Patrol Agents responded to a law enforcement request for assistance re an active shooter situation inside Robb Elementary School in Uvalde. Upon entering the building, Agents & other law enforcement officers faced gun fire from the subject, who was barricaded inside,”
The assistant secretary of public affairs for DHS, Marsha Espinosa reported in a tweet on Thursday.

“Risking their own lives, these Border Patrol Agents and other officers put themselves between the shooter and children on the scene to draw the shooter’s attention away from potential victims and save lives,” Espinosa added. “At least one Border Patrol Agent was wounded by the shooter during the exchange of gunfire. On-and-off duty Border Patrol Agents arrived on the scene to assist with transferring students safely to their families and providing medical support.”

According to officials, at least 21 people were killed, including 19 children and two adults, and several others were injured and transported to hospitals for treatment in this deadly incident.
