People who knew Salvador described him as anti-social and keeping to himself. The teenager also found himself a job at Wendy’s where he worked five days a week.
Reports share that Salvador was often made fun of because of the clothes she wore and his family’s financial situation. Shortly after, Ramos was notably coming to school less and less.
The woman, who is said to be from LA shared that she did not know Salvador and would have stopped him had she known what he was going to do.
“He’s a stranger, I know nothing about him. He decided to tag me in his gun post. I’m so sorry for the victims and their families, I really don’t know what to say,”
