Times Now’s according toTexas Governor Greg Abbott said that the 18-year-old was a local and a United States citizen who was killed by police after the shooting.

The Daily Mail accordingRamos was also lonely at school and had aggressive tendencies, as he was made fun of for being poor and for the way he dressed and wore eyeliner.
