School Shooter Said He Had A “Lil Secret”

( On Tuesday, Salvador Ramos, the 18-year-old shooter who killed 19 students and a teacher at a Texas elementary school, allegedly messaged a lady online about his plans before going on his killing rampage.

Before Meta took it down, Mediaite looked into an Instagram account that was said to belong to Ramos. Several photographs of firearms and a high-capacity magazine were shared on the account.

In the “Highlights” section, there was also a photo that tagged another Instagram user.

That user, a lady who will not be named, claimed that she had no knowledge of the suspected murderer in her Instagram posts. She posted screenshots of their talks on social media.

On May 12, an account thought to belong to Ramos messaged the lady, asking if she was going to upload his gun pics. (In reference to the Highlights photo in which she was tagged.)

“What have your guns got to do with me?” she asked.

“Just wanted to tag you,” was the reply.

She told the person that this entire exchange made her confused.

The person responded by saying she should be glad she was tagged.

She described the message as scary.

She wanted to know why he tagged her in a picture with guns when she hardly knew him.

On Monday night, the conversation started up again.
“I’ll text you in a hour… But you HAVE TO RESPOND… I got a lil secret… I wanna tell u,” the messages said. One message included a blushing emoji.

The woman said she was feeling ill and probably would be asleep.

At 9:16 a.m. Tuesday, the woman received another text which read: “Ima air out.”

She responded to that text at 1 PM. There was no reply.

In the aftermath, the woman wrote a statement on Instagram:

I DONT KNOW HIM AND I DONT EVEN LIVE IN TEXAS… the only reason i responded to him is i was afraid of him i wish i stayed awake to at least try to convince him not to commit his crime. i didnt know… he’s a stranger i know nothing about him he decided to tag me in his gun post. I’m so sorry for the victims and their families i really don’t know what to say.

Ramos shot his grandmother before going on his murderous rampage at the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde.
