Mother of Uvalde Shooter Arrested for Assault and Battery and Threats to Kill her Boyfriend

Adriana Reyes, the mother of the Uvalde shooter who shot 19 children and 2 teachers dead last May, was arrested last week in Oklahoma on assault and battery charges.

Reyes also allegedly threatened to kill her boyfriend.

Adriana Reyes reportedly struggles with drug addiction — which led to the 18-year-old mass murderer moving in with his grandmother, who he shot in the face before going to the elementary school.

“I have no words. I have no words to say. I don’t know what he was thinking,” Reyes told CNN affiliate Televisa. “He had his reasons for doing what he did and please don’t judge him. I only want the innocent children who died to forgive me.”

Asked by the reporter what she would say to the victim’s families, Reyes said: “Forgive me. Forgive my son. I know he had his reasons.”

Last week Adriana Reyes was taken into custody in Oklahoma.

The Insider reported:

The mother of the Uvalde gunman was reportedly arrested in Oklahoma after being accused of threatening to kill her boyfriend.

Adriana Martinez Reyes was taken into custody Wednesday on charges of assault and battery and threatening an act of violence, KWTV-DT and Uvalde Leader-News reported, citing police.

Oklahoma City police responded to a home on Jan. 4 after receiving a report of Reyes threatening a man, the outlets reported. The victim told officers at the scene that he feared the 40-year-old would harm him in his sleep.

Reyes denied his claims. However, Leader-News reported that a witness backed up the man’s statement, prompting her arrest. The outlet reported that the victim is working on getting a protection order against her.

Reyes was released from the Oklahoma County Jail at about 2:30 on Friday afternoon, per KWTV-DT.
