Update: According to the New York Post, the updated death toll in the Robb Elementary School shooting in Texas is 19 children and 2 adults.
Earlier: At least 18 children and 2 adults are dead after 18-year-old Salvador Ramos opened fire at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.
The updated death toll was revealed by Texas State Senator Roland Gutierrez.
Two law enforcement officers were also shot but are expected to survive, according to CNN.
The shooter is also deceased, likely fatally shot by responding officers.
A shooting that took place at a Texas elementary school between federal law enforcement and an 18-year-old is much worse than initially reported.
Robb Elementary, part of the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District, went into lockdown on Tuesday at 11:43 a.m. local time, school officials said in a statement.
The shooter barricaded himself inside the school after shooting one person, police told Fox LA.
So far, fourteen have been reported dead and multiple injured, mostly children.
The shooter, identified as 18-year-old Salvador Roma, was not a student at the school.
According to the Daily Mail, Roma had been on the run from the US Border Patrol and engaged the agents prior to barricading himself inside the school.
Roma was killed in the final exchange between himself and law enforcement, and it is unknown how many innocents were killed due to crossfire between the two parties.
Initial reports indicated that the shooting took place off-campus, though it was to be reported as a school shooting due to the proximity to the education facility.

All students were taken to the school auditorium so they could be accounted for.
Parents were urged not to go to the school until an all-clear could be given.
Robb Elementary School teaches grades 2 through 4, according to its website.
Roma’s image was scrubbed from social media but was recovered due to an archive site.
