Texas gunman Salvador Ramos’ grandma ‘may never speak again after shooting’

The grandmother of the Texas school gunman he shot in the face before killing 19 children and two teachers may never be able to speak again, a relative told the Post Sunday.

“The bullet went into Sally’s jaw right next to her mouth and shattered all of her teeth,” said Jason Ybarra, a second cousin of injured grandma Celia “Sally” Martinez Gonzales, 66.

“If the bullet had gone an inch any other way, it would have blown her head off,” he said.

“She’s doing pretty well considering what happened. But she may never be able to speak again,” added Ybarra, 45.

Martinez Gonzales is only communicating in writing at this time, Ybarra said.

She was Salvador Ramos’ first victim Tuesday before he opened fire on innocent children and teachers at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.

The grandma has already had multiple surgeries for her wounds, including one Sunday, and will have numerous more, Ybarra said.

Rolando Reyes, her husband, told the Post Thursday his wife was “awake and stuff but she’s in pain.”

“She had a notebook where she writes what she’s trying to say, but when we don’t understand it, she gets frustrated,” Reyes said.

Ramos had been staying with his grandparents for the last two or three months before embarking on his deadly killing spree.
