NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Tennessee leaders are speaking out after the tragedy in West Texas Tuesday. Nineteen students, along with two teachers, were killed in a mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.

Governor Greg Abbott also said during a press conference Tuesday that the shooter — identified as 18-year-old Salvador Ramos — is also dead.

Tennessee leaders took to social media to express their condolences, with some taking aim at the ongoing gun control debate in the U.S.:
