How Matthew McConaughey and a GOP lawmaker are helping schools after Uvalde shooting
Actor Matthew McConaughey and Rep. Tony Gonzales, R-Texas, discuss their Greenlights Grant Initiative on ‘Special Report.’
A cousin of Salvador Ramos, the gunman who killed 19 children and two teachers at a Uvalde, Texas elementary school, has been arrested for allegedly threatening a school.
The teenage boy’s mother reported he was planning to “do the same thing” as Ramos, Fox 29 reported. He reportedly made statements to his sister, who told their mother, who called the police.
The mother said she was concerned because the teen is on probation and was intoxicated when he allegedly made the threats. They also live near an elementary school. She overheard a phone conversation where the boy was trying to acquire an AR-15 through an illegal private sale, the news report said.
The sister said she was giving her brother a ride when he allegedly threatened to shoot her in the head and to “shoot the school.”
