(CHRON) – A survivor of Tuesday's school shooting in Uvalde, Texas says suspected gunman Salvador Ramos played menacing music and taunted her teacher before killing her amid a spree of violence that took the lives of 19 students and two educators at Robb Elementary School.
Speaking to CNN's Nora Neus on Thursday, 11-year-old Miah Cerrillo recounted harrowing moments inside a shared classroom space where Ramos shot and killed all 21 of his victims before he was killed by a responding Border Patrol tactical unit. Miah said her class was watching "Lilo & Stitch" when Eva Mireles and Irma Garcia, two teachers present in the conjoined classrooms, received an email about an active shooter on campus. One teacher went to check the door, according to Miah, and found 18-year-old Ramos peering into the room.

At this point the teacher and Ramos made eye contact, Miah said, and the gunman proceeded to back her into the classroom. The teacher and the gunman then made eye contact a second time, at which point Ramos said "good night." He then shot and killed the teacher, Miah said.
