Texas school gunner Salvador Ramos was ‘violent towards women’

Keanna Baxter spurned a hookup from the “scary” Salvador Ramos after watching a boyfriend who’d been dating him become terrified of her fugitive Uvalde High School classmate.

“He dated my ex-boyfriend. And then they broke up,” Baxter, 17, told the San Antonio Express News. “And then after that he tried to date me but I told him no. Because he always had that kind of creepy feeling about him.”

Ramos, 18, butchered 19 elementary school students and two teachers on Tuesday when he broke into Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, in America’s deadliest school shooting since 2012.

Baxter said Ramos was unpredictable and violent when he was with her friend.

“She told me he was scary,” Baxter said. “Like he’s going to get super violent. And when he lost his temper, she literally feared for her life at heart.

“He sent her these really nasty texts where he went from super cute yelling down her back to super cute.”

“He was just aggressive overall, like violent,” Baxter added. “He would try to fight women. He would try to fight anyone who told him no – if he didn’t get his way, he would go insane. He was particularly violent towards women.”

One of those women was Crystal Foutz, 17, also a student at Uvalde High School.

Ramos threatened to harm her in comments on Instagram after he clashed with her ex-boyfriend on social media.

“It was just annoying. And I never liked provoking him or anything,” Foutz said on Friday. “He was aggressive for no reason. … I just blocked him.”

Foutz also heard that Ramos molested his former girlfriend after they broke up.

“Another friend of mine when she was working with (Ramos) there was an incident between a friend and a boyfriend – (Ramos) was trying to fight the friend,” Foutz told Express News. “And it really wasn’t about anything. Just because he was so aggressive.”

It’s not the first time his contemporaries have described Ramos’ erratic behavior.

Santos Valdez Jr., 18, said they were close until the would-be shooter went off the rails. Ramos showed up one day with cuts on his face at a park where they were playing basketball. First he told Valdez he was scratched by his cat, then he revealed the truth – he cut himself “just for fun”.

A video is circulating of Ramos holding up a dead cat in the passenger seat of a car, Baxter said. Foutz said she saw TikTok videos Ramos posted of him banging against walls with boxing gloves and stating he could fight anyone.

“He was just very pushy,” Foutz recalled. “If you asked for something or if he tried to tease you or if he tried to tell you something and you didn’t give him a response, that would have made him angry…[He was]very pushy, very aggressive . ”

Rumors circulated among the high school students that Ramos was upset that he would not be able to graduate. He reportedly dropped out of high school, but Baxter saw him at school last month. Foutz recalled seeing him on campus last fall.

“To be honest, I didn’t think twice about this kid,” Baxter said. “I knew this kid for barely a year. He kind of appeared out of nowhere.”

Both girls called Ramos a “loner” with no “friends.”

“He shooed away the people who tried to give him a chance to be friends with them,” Foutz said. “He really was a tyrant. If you didn’t give him what he wanted, he was a tyrant to you.”

“He had no friends,” Baxter said. “To be honest, no one has ever spoken to him. Just because people were really scared of him.”

In fact, some students thought that if there was a destination for this type of tragedy, it would be high school.

“We all thought maybe they would do it to the high school — because we’ve had threats before,” she said. “But not for the children. We should have been. There was no reason to harm these children.

“None of us are like that. None of us have that kind of hatred in our hearts for doing something like that or knowing how that could ever have happened.”
