"He shot and killed horrifically and incomprehensibly 14 students and killed a teacher," Abbott said during an unrelated press briefing.

Texas shooting: Fifteen killed in attack at US primary school​

Fifteen people have died in a shooting at a primary school in Texas, says Governor Greg Abbott.

The 18-year-old gunman killed 14 students and one teacher at Robb Elementary School in the city of Uvalde.

The governor said the suspect was armed with a handgun and possibly a rifle in the attack.

Governor Abbott says the suspect is deceased, and it is believed that responding officers killed him.

The public were asked to stay away as police investigate the crime scene.

Shootings at primary schools, where pupils range in age from five to 11, are still relatively rare.

The attack on Tuesday comes amid a national rise in gun violence.

Governor Abbott identified the attacker as a local 18-year old, who he said "shot and killed, horrifically, incomprehensibly, 14 students and killed a teacher".

"He himself is deceased, and it is believed that responding officers killed him," he added.

"It is believed that two responding officers were struck by rounds, but have no serious injuries."

The Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District - around 85 miles (135km) west of the city of San Antonio - told the BBC that students had been evacuated from the school.

Local hospitals disclosed that students from the school were being treated by emergency services.
