Colegio Cervantes shooting

TORREÓN, COAHUILA, MEXICO – JANUARY 10, 2020 The “Colegio Cervantes shooting” is one of the worst school shootings in history. Not for the number of victims, but mostly because of the age of the attacker. It was only 11-year-old José Ángel Ramos Betts.

He arrived at the school with two guns he stole from his grandfather. During class, he went to the toilet to change his clothes. He was wearing a T-shirt that said “Natural Selecrion”, referring to the Columbine school shooting and to Eric Harris. Even the rest of his clothes bore a striking resemblance to Harris on the day of the massacre.

When English teacher María Assaf Medina went looking for him, she met him in the hallway with the guns. He opened fire on the physics teacher and five classmates – wounding all of them. He then shot María, who died on the spot. While other teachers heard the shooting and evacuated the students, the young shooter put a gun to his head and committed suicide.

The boy came from a broken home. His mother had died and his father was in prison in El Paso, Texas, for drug trafficking. His 58-year-old grandfather, José Ángel Ramos Saucedo, also had a criminal record for drug trafficking. He was later found to still be involved in the trade. He had millions of dollars in bank transfers. He was arrested and charged with money laundering, tax evasion and leaving weapons in a place accessible to a child.
