Texas school shooting: Duchess of Sussex lays flowers at site of massacre | US News


The Duchess of Sussex has laid flowers at the site of a school shooting in Texas in which 19 children and two teachers were killed.

Meghan placed a bouquet of white roses tied with a purple ribbon at a row of crosses put up in memory of the victims.

The flowers were laid near the cross of 10-year-old Uziyah Garcia, which had the words “you will be missed” written on it, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The Duchess made the trip in a personal capacity as a mother, her spokesperson said, adding that she wanted to give her condolences and support in person.

High school dropout Salvador Ramos went on a rampage in Uvalde on Tuesday, in the deadliest US school shooting in almost a decade.

Gun safety advocates are now pushing US President Joe Biden to take stronger measures to curb such violence.

Among the actions they are calling for are to name a gun violence tsar and issue an executive order on background checks for firearms purchases.

While Mr Biden has vowed to push for new gun restrictions, the White House wants Congress to act first, to create a more significant impact than executive action alone.
