US President Joe Biden, reacting to this shooting incident, said, 'As a nation, we have to ask, in the name of God, when will we stand up for the gun lobby and what can we do?
Parents will never see their children again. Now is the time to take action. We need to tell those who take up guns in this way are against the law, we will not forgive it.
This 18-year-old attacker was armed with a handgun and rifle. After the shooting in the school, the parents of the children gathered outside the school.

The 18-year-old attacker left his car outside the school before the incident. Then as soon as he entered the school, he started firing indiscriminately. During this, there has been chaos all around and everyone started trying to run away.
