The mother of the sick school shooter who shot dead 19 children and two teachers in Texas has claimed he ‘wasn’t a violent person’.

Adriana Reyes said she was ‘surprised’ Salvador Ramos opened fire in a horrific killing spree at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde yesterday.

She admitted her son was a loner who ‘kept to himself and didn’t have many friends’ but shot down claims she had a toxic relationship with him.

But in an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com she did not address claims she was a drug addict who saw the boy leave her and go to live with his grandmother Celia Gonzalez.

Reyes was speaking from the bedside of Gonzalez, 66, as she recovers from being blasted in the face by her vile grandson before he went on a rampage and shot dead 19 children and two teachers.

He had earlier bought two AR-15 assault rifles, bragged about them on social media and suggested he would commit an atrocity before the deadly attack.

But earlier today Ramos’ grandfather revealed the family had no idea he legally purchased the two weapons last week.

Rolando Reyes, 74, Gonzalez’s husband, also described his grandson as a quiet teenager who spent most of his time alone in his room.
