Shocking new details about Texas school shooter Salvador Ramos' background revealed after 'cops called to mom's home'
CHILLING new details surrounding a school shooter's background have emerged after cops were reportedly called to his mom’s home – months before he massacred 19 students.
Salvador Ramos, 18, opened fire inside Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas in a 94-minute rampage on Tuesday.
Two months ago, the gunman shared a video online where he appeared to scream at his mom Adriana M. Reyes, the Washington Post revealed.
One of Ramos’ high school classmates Nadia Reyes, who isn’t related to the family in any way, said: “He posted videos on his Instagram where the cops were there and he’d call his mom a b**** and say she wanted to kick him out.”
Reyes claimed Ramos would talk to his mom aggressively.
A series of chilling red flags have since emerged following Tuesday's mass shooting.

One of Ramos’ ex co-workers at a Wendy’s fast-food restaurant described him as rude, the Daily Beast reported.
She claimed: “He would be very rude towards the girls sometimes.”
The co-worker also alleged he sent inappropriate text messages to female colleagues.
And, another former co-worker Grace Cruz exclusively told The Sun that Ramos boasted about saving enough money to buy guns and ammunition.

She said: "I didn’t feel safe around him, so I always kept my distance even though we worked the same hours."
And, one of Ramos’ friends claimed he would show off his collection of weapons and ammunition.
The friend, whose name was not revealed, told CNN: “Four days ago he sent me a picture of the AR he was using and a backpack full of 5.56 rounds, probably like seven mags.”
Santos Valdez Jr, who had been Ramos' friend since elementary school, said they used to play video games such as Call of Duty together before his behavior changed.
Ramos' friend noticed he had scratches on his face when they were playing basketball in the park.
'JUST FOR FUN'
Ramos claimed that he had been attacked by his cat before admitting that he cut his face using knives.
Valdez recalled: "I was like 'You're crazy, bro, why would you do that?"
Ramos reportedly told Valdez that he did it for fun.
Ramos was also bullied in school, according to his best friend in eighth grade Stephen Garcia.
His cousin Mia said that students would mock his speech impediment.
She added: “He wasn’t very much of a social person after being bullied for the stutter. I think he just didn’t feel comfortable in school.”
The gunman's father Salvador Chava Ramos said his son dropped out of school and had grown frustrated with precautions relating to the Covid pandemic.
He told the Daily Beast: "He dropped out because he said they were bullying him at school because of his clothes.
“He was a quiet person, stuck to himself. He didn't bother nobody. People were always bothering him.”
Adriana told Daily Mail.com that Ramos wasn't a "violent person".
GOP congressman Tony Gonzales, who represents Texas' 23rd congressional district, claimed on Fox News that Ramos was arrested four years ago for threatening to carry out a shooting at a school when he turned 18.
But, the Texas Rangers and officials at the Texas Department of Safety told the outlet that the claims are incorrect.
