  • Santa Fe school shooting renews debate over gun control

Mirroring the attacks in Parkland, Fla., the Sandy Hook shooting in 2012, and Columbine High school in 1999, Pagourtzis snuck a .38 caliber pistol and Remington shotgun in his black coat and brought it to school Friday morning (May 18) and opened fire before the first bell rang.

Dimitrios Pagourtzis, a student at the school, faces charges of capital murder and aggravated assault of a public servant.

Officials said that teachers and staff are scheduled to return to campuses on Wednesday, while students are scheduled to return to campus on May 29, according to KPRC-TV. He said the nature of the probe remains unclear, because kids have not been interviewed on this matter. Galveston County Judge Mark Henry, the county's top administrator, has said police exchanged rounds with Pagourtzis "for quite a while" before he surrendered a half-hour after the first reports of a shooter on campus.

"Roughly about a third of those that were triaged were for suicidal intention, and they're mostly female; females act in, males act out", Phillips said.

"They contained him in that one area, isolated to them, engaging with them, so he did no more damage to other classes", he said. Greg Abbott's re-election campaign has dropped a shotgun giveaway from his website. He said the shooter was contained until his arrest, with minimal gunfire from law enforcement officers, to the art classroom where his bloody rampage was focused.

"In every door they opened, they weren't sure what was on the other side of it, but they opened those doors continuously, time after time, until that school was cleared", the sheriff said.

The tight-knit community of Santa Fe is still reeling from a tragedy that many thought would never happen in their small town.

Delgado, a hairdresser and mother of two, remembers the day like a dream: a call from her best friend who couldn't find her children, running down the highway in her pajamas, passing screaming parents and teenagers covered in blood.

"Anybody wants to hear their heart stop and see how long they can not breathe, wait till that phone call comes in, until you know they're safe", he said.

Christina Delgado, right, talks about the school shooting as her daughter, London, listens in Santa Fe, Texas.

Trochesset said the suspect was on suicide watch in the Galveston County Jail on Monday. When a man killed more than two dozen people at a church past year in Sutherland Springs, Texas, the state's attorney general, Ken Paxton, said there ought to be more guns in churches.

Shana finally stood up to him and embarrassed him in class, Ms Rodriguez said in a private message to the "Los Angles Times".

Ten people were killed and at least 13 others were hurt, including a school resource officer. He said his son was bullied and said, "I believe that's what was behind the shooting".

Santa Fe Independent School District Police Chief Walter Braun said Monday Barnes was in the intensive care unit after surgery. "One of the shotgun shells was for my daughter", she said.
