Salvador Ramos Texas shooting: Chilling red flags before gunman killed 21 after his 'inappropriate' texts to colleagues

A SCHOOL shooter was branded inappropriate and rude by ex-workers as a series of chilling red flags have since emerged following the massacre.

At least 19 kids and two adults have been killed after Salvador Ramos, 18, opened fire inside Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, on Tuesday morning.

One of Ramos’ ex co-workers at a Wendy’s fast-food restaurant branded the teen rude, the Daily Beast reported.

She claimed: “He would be very rude towards the girls sometimes.”

The co-worker also alleged he sent inappropriate text messages to female colleagues.

Meanwhile, other former colleagues said Ramos was quiet and rarely interacted with them.

Evening manager Adrian Mendes told CNN: “He felt like the quiet type, the one who doesn’t say much. He didn’t really socialize with employees.

“He just worked, got paid, and came in to get his check.”

And, one of Ramos’ friends claimed he would show off his collection of weapons and ammunition.

The pal, whose name was not revealed, told CNN: “Four days ago he sent me a picture of the AR he was using and a backpack full of 5.56 rounds, probably like seven mags.”

He claimed that Ramos sent him a message that said he wouldn’t recognize him now compared to his school days.

As news of the shooting emerged, an Instagram user revealed harrowing messages that were allegedly sent by Ramos.


The account claiming to be the gunman, which has since been taken down, tagged a random user in a photo featuring weapons before the attack.

“You gonna repost my gun pics,” wrote the shooter.

The person he tagged, who claims that she does not know the shooter and doesn’t live in Texas, asked: “What your guns gotta do with me?”

The shooter writes back: “Just wanted to tag you.”

Throughout the conversation, which the Instagram user provides through screenshots, the shooter kept contacting the user with vague messages.

They posted: "The only reason I responded to him was because I was afraid of him.

“I wish I stayed awake to at least try to convince him to not commit his crime I didn’t know. I don’t know him and I don’t even live in Texas.”


And, the bio of a TikTok account thought to belong to the shooter said: “Kids be scared irl.”

The account, which displayed only one video of a mobile game, was taken down following the shooting.

Both of Ramos' alleged social media accounts on TikTok and Instagram featured the same photo and the line "TheBiggestOpp."

At least 19 kids have been confirmed dead and worried families gathered outside a civic center searching for answers.


Eva Mireles, a fourth-grade teacher at the school, was among the first victims to be identified.

Xavier Lopez, 10, was also named as a victim of the shooting by family members, who created a GoFundMe to help cover the young boy's funeral expenses. He was a fourth-grader at the school.

Hours before the massacre, Lopez's mom attended his awards ceremony.

Nine-year-old Uziyah Garcia, also a fourth-grader, was also named a victim of the shooting by his aunt, Nikki Cross.

Eliahana 'Elijah Cruz' Torres, 10, reportedly didn't want to go to school on Tuesday, her grandad told Fox News.

And, Jennifer and Steven Lugo revealed their daughter Ellie had died.

They said she had been missing for hours.

In a heartbreaking Facebook post, Steven said: "It’s hard to issue out a statement on anything right now my mind is going at 1000 miles per hour… but I do wanna send our thoughts and prayers to those who also didn’t make it home tonight!!!

"Our Ellie was a doll and was the happiest ever,' Steven wrote on Facebook. 'Mom and Dad love you never forget that and please try and stay by our side."

Amerie Jo Garza had turned 10 years old – just weeks before she was slain.

Her grieving dad Angel told ABC News: "She's been found. My little love is now flying high with the angels above."

Uvalde School District Police Chief Pete Arredondo said all the deceased and injured students are in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade.

Officials at Uvalde Memorial Hospital confirmed that 13 kids arrived at their facility for treatment.

Meanwhile, an adult, 66, and a 10-year-old girl are said to be in a critical condition in a San Antonio hospital.

President Joe Biden revealed there have been 900 "incidents" on school grounds since the Sandy Hook shooting in 2012.
