Salvador Ramos told a girl online he was going to shoot the school

Salvador Ramos sent terrifying messages to a girl in Germany just before he butchered 19 children and two teachers at a Texas elementary school.

Ramos had chatted with the 15-year-old girl on social media apps and FaceTime. On the day of the shooting, he texted the girl at around 11:01 a.m. Central Time and told her he loved her.

Six minutes later, according to CNN, he said, “I just shot my grandma in the head.” Then, seconds later, he wrote, “Ima go shoot up a(n) elementary school rn (right now).”

The killer said the grandmother “annoyed” him and contacted AT&T about his phone use.

The messages were sent around 11:21am Central Time – before he opened fire on Robb Elementary School in Uvalde.

The network received screenshots of the exchange and interviewed the teenager.

The messages were his final contact with the girl, whom he had been texting and FaceTiming for weeks.

The two met via a social media app on May 9. Ramos sent her selfies and told her he was planning to visit her in Germany. In another exchange, he sent her a flight schedule from San Antonio to Frankfurt, CNN reported.

On Monday, Ramos told the girl he bought ammunition that expands when it hits a person, increasing their lethality.

When the girl asked him what he was up to, he told her coldly, “Just wait.”

The girl told CNN that the two spoke daily via FaceTime and several other social media and gaming apps. She said Ramos seemed “happy and well” when they spoke and said their conversations often centered on her life in Germany.

She told him he spends a lot of time at home alone: ​​”Every time I spoke to him, he never had any plans with his friends,” she said.

While most of her messages seemed harmless, she said Ramos raised a red flag when he told the girl he was “throwing dead cats at people’s houses”.

The message exchange is separate from the one he allegedly sent to another girl, whom Ramos tagged in an Instagram post with the two guns he bought on his 18th birthday.

An Instagram account with the username “salv8dor_”, believed to be Ramos, contained photos of guns and selfies. The account has since been deleted.

He allegedly tagged a complete stranger, a user named @epnupues, who told the Daily Beast that Ramos texted her that he “has a little secret.” She said she was afraid of being tagged in a post about guns.

At 5:43 a.m. the morning of the shooting, he said to the girl, “I’m in.” When she asked what he was up to, he replied that he would tell her “before 11.”

His last message at 9:16 am was “Ima air out”.
