An 18-year-old gunman opened fire Tuesday at a Texas elementary school, killing at least 19 children

The death toll also included three adults, according to state Sen.The attacker was killed by law enforcement.

But it was not immediately clear whether that number included the attacker, or how many people were wounded.

The attack also came just 10 days after a deadly, racist rampage at a  Buffalo, New York, supermarket that added to a yearslong series of mass  killings at churches, schools and stores.

And the prospects for any reform of the nation’s gun regulations seemed as dim as in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook deaths.

President Joe Biden appeared ready for a fight and called for new gun restrictions in an address to the nation hours after the attack.
