We Now Know Who Stopped the Uvalde Shooter
Spencer Brown / Townhall Tipsheet
When a deranged 18-year-old stormed into a Uvalde, Texas, elementary school — after reportedly killing his own grandmother — and opened fire, there was apparently no one on hand to stop his rampage. No one, that is, until Border Patrol agents in the small city of around 16,000 residents heard of the unfolding horror and sprung into action without hesitation.

Uvalde, Texas, is home to a Border Patrol station due to its proximity to the U.S.-Mexico border some 70 miles away.

As The Associated Press reported late Tuesday evening, a border agent "rushed into the school without waiting for backup and shot and killed the gunman, who was behind a barricade, according to a law enforcement official speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk about it."

Ukraine: Russia must withdraw to pre-war positions for talks

KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Ukraine’s president said Wednesday that Russia must pull back to its pre-war positions as a first step before diplomatic talks, a negotiating line that Moscow is unlikely to agree to anytime soon as it focuses its fire on key regions in the east three months into the war.

Speaking by video link at this year’s World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy expressed a willingness to negotiate with Russian President Vladimir Putin directly, but stressed that Moscow needs to make clear it too is ready to “shift from the bloody war to diplomacy.”

“It’s possible if Russia shows at least something. When I say at least something, I mean pulling back troops to where they were before Feb. 24,” the day Russia’s invasion began, he said. “I believe it would be a correct step for Russia to make.”
