Update: Texas shooter's grandma 'may never be able to talk again after being shot in the face by her grandson before he massacred 19 school children and two teachers

The Texas school shooter’s grandmother, who he shot in the face before killing 19 children and two teachers, may never be able to talk again, a relative of the Uvalde gunman has revealed.

Celia ‘Sally’ Gonzalez , 66, was the first victim of Salvador Ramos’ rampage when the 18-year-old shot her in the face on the morning of May 24 with the bullet hitting her in the jaw and shattering her teeth.

After the shooting, Ramos, armed with an AR-15 style rifle, stole his grandparents’ Ford pickup truck and drove to Robb Elementary School to begin his 77-minute-long rampage, killing 19 children and two teachers dead.

Jason Ybarra, the second-cousin of Gonzalez , said that although she is doing ‘fairly well’ she may never be able to talk again, according to The New York Post.

Ybarra said that Gonzalez is only able to communicate by writing for the time being.

Gonzalez’s husband, Rolando Reyes, said in an interview with the Post on May 27 that she was ‘conscious’ but in pain.

Reyes said: ‘She had a notebook where she writes what she’s trying to say, but when we can’t make it out, she gets frustrated.’

In the months leading up to the shooting, Ramos had been living with his grandparents.

According to a GoFundMe page that has been set up by Gonzalez’s daughter, Natalie Salazar, she has had four major surgeries since the events of May 24 and is facing several more.

Describing the aftermath of Gonzalez being shot by her grandson, Salazar writes: ‘My mom was shot in the face and left to die alone in her home by her very own grandson. It was by the grace of God that she was able to get up off the floor and walk to a neighbors home and ask for help.

Officials said that Ramos fought with his grandmother over a phone bill which resulted in him opening fire at her home.

Although Ramos’ grandfather said that the argument was minor in an interview with ABC News.
