The gunman who killed 19 students and two teachers in the Uvalde mass shooting told a classroom of children that “it’s time to die,” according to a fourth-grader who survived the attack.

The chilling words allegedly uttered by Salvador Ramos inside Robb Elementary on Tuesday were revealed by a 9-year-old who spoke to KENS 5, describing how he hid under a table during the shooting rampage.

“He shot the next person’s door. We have a door in the middle. He opened it. He came in and he crouched a little bit and he said, ‘It’s time to die,'” the student told the station. “When he shot, it was very loud and it hurt my ear.”
