The site of last month’s deadly mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas is set to be demolished.  

Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin says Robb Elementary School will be razed: “You can never ask a child to go back or a teacher to go back in that school ever“.

19 students and 2 teachers were killed in the May 24th massacre.  The police response to the shooting is currently under investigation.

No timeline has been given for the demolition.
