Uvalde school shooter posted AR-15 on Instagram with ‘kids be scared’ in TikTok bio

UVALDE, Texas (KYMA, KECY) - Photos of two AR-15-style rifles posted to an Instagram account has now been reportedly connected to the shooter at the school.

It was posted just three days before the deadly mass shooting.

Multiple classmates confirm the account belonged to Salvador Ramos who also died following the attack.

Some classmates say Ramos was bullied at school.

Ramos’ also had a TikTok page. It had only one post, unrelated to the shooting; however, the bio under his profile picture on that account reads “kids be scared IRL.”

That’s an acronym meaning “in real life.”
