Fears of copycat shooters after the Texas massacre rise after another teen is arrested with an AR-15-style rifle.

Multiple close calls have occurred across the country following the Salvador Ramos rampage at Robb Elementary School that left 19 students and two teachers dead, and more than a dozen others injured.

Ramos allegedly shot his grandmother before fleeing that scene in his truck, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said Wednesday.

He then crashed the vehicle outside the elementary school, where he was met by officers. But she managed to enter the school through a back door, Abbott said.

The incident occurred just minutes after Ramos allegedly sent messages to a 15-year-old girl in Germany whom he befriended on a live streaming platform, informing her of his plans.

The massacre comes after the Uvalde Leader-News reported that four years ago this month, two teenagers were arrested after authorities discovered their plot to commit a mass shooting at nearby Morales High School.

A student was arrested Wednesday after he was seen walking toward Berkner High School with what was believed to be a rifle.

Richardson police responded to the scene. A Berkner High student was identified as the suspect.

While he was not found with a rifle, police did find an AK-47-style pistol and an AR-15-style rifle in his car, according to a local ABC News affiliate.

The unidentified student was reportedly charged with illegally carrying weapons in a gun-free school zone.

The high school and a nearby elementary school were put on lockdown during the incident.

“The Richardson Police Department would like to remind the public of the importance of reporting suspicious activity, as we recognize the vigilance and actions of the individual who initially called 911 to alert police,” Richardson Police said.

A Maryland man threatened violence against an elementary school and a local business on May 23.

The search for Earl Benjamin Washington Jr was underway after the threats surfaced.

Washington allegedly called Gale-Bailey Elementary School and a business in the area to make the threats on Monday.

“The calls to the specific locations are related to people he knows and are believed to be related to the household,” according to a statement from the Charles County Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities had asked for the public’s help in finding Washington after a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Washington was taken into custody Wednesday morning in St Mary’s County.

The sheriff’s office said “out of an abundance of caution,” more officers will be at Gale-Bailey Elementary School this week.

“This is due in no small part to the bravery and conscientiousness of the students who came forward and alerted Kemble staff today.”
