Post Santa Fe High School Shooting: 10 Dead and 10 Injured

link

Santa Fe High School student suspected in shooting that killed 10, injured 10
Explosive devices found on and off campus, officials say
By*Aaron Barker*- Senior Web Editor,*AP Author,*Cory McCord*- Digital News Editor
Posted: 8:00 AM, May 18, 2018 Updated: 8:01 PM, May 18, 2018

Santa Fe, Texas*- Dimitrios Pagourtzis, the student charged in the school shooting at Santa Fe High School, posted an image on Facebook of himself wearing a "Born to Kill" shirt and used his father's shotgun and pistol in the attack that left 10 dead and 10 wounded, authorities said Friday.

A motive wasn't immediately clear for the nation's deadliest attack since February.

Pagourtzis, 17, was held without bond in the Galveston County Jail on charges of capital murder and assault of a peace officer, said the county sheriff, Henry Trochesset.

Court documents show*Pagourtzis hid a shotgun and .38-caliber revolver under a trench coat,*walked into the school around 7:30 a.m. and began firing.

Pagourtzis told authorities that he shot multiple people inside the school with the intent to kill them, according to the complaint. He also said he did not shoot students he liked so he could have his story told, court documents state.

Nine students and a teacher were killed.

Chris Stone, 17, and Sabika Sheikh, a foreign exchange student from Pakistan, were among those killed.

Ten other people*were injured, including*Santa Fe Independent School District police Officer John Barnes.

A spokesman for UTMB Hospital in Galveston said doctors treated Barnes, a 16-year-old boy and a middle-aged woman.

A spokesman for Clear Lake Regional Medical Center said doctors there were also treating some of the injured.

Guns and 'Born to Kill' shirt
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said both weapons were owned legally by the suspect's father. It was not clear whether the father knew his son had taken them.

Abbott said that*Pagourtzis' journal revealed that he wanted to kill himself after the shooting, but he admitted to authorities after he was arrested that he did not have the courage to do it.

"The red-flag warnings were either nonexistent or very imperceptible," Abbott said, though he acknowledged Pagourtzis had recently posted a picture of a T-shirt reading "Born to Kill" on his Facebook page.

That same Facebook profile described Pagourtzis as planning to enter the U.S. Marine Corps next year, but the Marine Corps told The Associated Press it has reviewed its records and found no one by that name as either a recruit or a person in their delayed entry pool.

Abbott said at a news conference that "unlike Parkland, unlike Sutherland Springs, there were not those types of warning signs." He was referring to the Feb. 14 school shooting in Florida and one in November inside a church in a town near San Antonio.

Abbott said the early investigation showed no prior criminal history for Pagourtzis -- no arrests and no confrontations with law enforcement.

Classmates described Pagourtzis as quiet, an avid video game player who routinely wore a black trench coat and black boots to class. He had played football on the school's junior varsity squad and danced as part of a church group. Those who know him expressed shock he might be involved in the killings.

In addition to Pagourtzis, two others were detained, said Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez. It is not clear if they are connected to the shooting.

Timeline of attack
According to court records, multiple law enforcement agencies responded to the school about 7:30 a.m. after receiving reports of an active shooter.

Reports said multiple people had been shot.

Between 7:45 a.m. and*8 a.m., law enforcement officers arrived at the school.

The school went on lockdown at 8 a.m.

At 8:02 a.m., court records said a "white male exited Art Lab 2 classroom of the Santa Fe High School and surrendered. The male was identified as*Pagourtzis."

Explosives found on and off campus
An unknown number of possible explosive devices were found at the school and at a separate site nearby.

Bomb squads descended on the Santa Fe area after the shooting.

Officials said two*bombs*were found inside Santa Fe High School. Officials said CO2 cannisters with black powder and fuses were found, but neither of the devices exploded.

Authorities said explosive devices were also found at off-campus locations.

Abbott said one of the devices was powered by carbon dioxide, while another one appeared to be a Molotov cocktail.*

Authorities surrounded a home about three miles away from the school, where a deputy said there was a bomb inside the house.

Investigators also swarmed a second home in a neighborhood about five miles away from the school. Officials there could be seen gearing up with battering rams, sledgehammers and saws.

It was not immediately clear exactly how either of those scenes was connected to the shooting.

Officials urged the community to immediately report anything suspicious, and not to handle any items that appear out of place.

Students, parents recall shooting
One student said that he heard as many as eight gunshots. Another student reported hearing several gunshots before hearing alarms and being told to evacuate.

"I was sitting in my classroom and I heard really loud booms, but I really didn't know what they were at first," student Dakota Schrader said. "Then, I realized what they were when I heard screaming."

"I never thought it would happen here," said Tyler Turner.

"It hurts my heart to see this happening," another student said. "I don't feel safe in this town anymore ... There was nothing we could do but run."

Parents of students were told to go to the Alamo Gym at 13306 Highway 6 to be reunited with their children.

Santa Fe ISD said vehicles in the parking lot at the high school can be picked up after 9 a.m. Saturday. No one will be allowed on the property before then.

Vigils held, flags at half-staff
A prayer vigil for the victims of the shooting is being held Friday night*at the Texas First Bank at 12402 Highway 6 in Santa Fe.

The Houston Astros said a moment of silence was held before Friday nightís game at Minute Maid Park to honor the victims.

President Donald Trump and Gov. Abbott ordered flags to be flown at half-staff in honor of the victims.

Santa Fe ISD to remain closed through Tuesday
The district released a statement saying all schools would be closed early next week.

"The Santa Fe Independent School District is committed to ensuring that all of our students and staff receive the care and support they need during this tragic time."All schools in Santa Fe ISD will be closed on Monday, May 21st, and Tuesday, May 22, 2018. We will update you as soon as a plan for returning to school is finalized."We know that our students and staff are going to need counseling to help them grieve. They also are going to need an outlet to share their fears and concerns. We will have additional school counselors and other support resources available to our SFISD students and staff. We will send additional information soon. Parents, please do not hesitate to ask for help if you notice a change in your childís typical demeanor."In the meantime, please continue to pray for our SFISD community as we grieve."

Panicked moments earlier this year
In February, parents rushed to the high school after reports of a shooting.

Investigators later said those reports were unfounded, and that popping sounds that came from outside the school caused the panic.

It's a tragedy, prayers to the victims, our thoughts are with you, this is not the time to talk about gun control.

Sigh.

Did I leave anything out?

Santa Fe High School shooting showed how TV news has become accustomed to covering mass shootings
"The increase in the number of mass shootings has resulted in a kind of template for covering such a horrifying tragedy," says Cynthia Littleton. "Interviews with shaken students and grieving parents, a rush to find biographical details about the suspected shooter and discussions with angry activists railing about the lack of curbs on the availability of guns and ammunition have become a chilling staple of TV."

It’s hard persuading people these days that human life is sacred. Just wondering why this is happening more. It’s a shame people can’t control their emotions. Blaming the gun is too easy, IMO. Anything can be made into a weapon. Seems like people just are a lot less willing to put up with other people these days.

There was another shooting at a high school graduation outside of Atlanta the same day.

I have no doubt that this epidemic would not be happening without the incessant TV coverage of today. These are all nobodies that want to be somebodies in a world that worships celebrity and they have no other option than to do something horrific to get famous. Basically the same as Charles Manson.

Jimmy Kimmel addresses the Santa Fe High School shooting in a cold open to his show
Kimmel somberly addressed the Santa Fe shooting separately from his show in a three-minute cold open Friday night, airing before his usual Jimmy Kimmel Live! opening credits and possibly filmed without his studio audience. Kimmel later referenced the Santa Fe shooting in his monologue, so Friday's show wasn't pre-taped before the tragedy. (Kimmel doesn't usually tape on Fridays, but he did a special Friday show because he was away for ABC's upfronts in New York City on Monday and Tuesday.) “Once again our leaders are sending their thoughts and prayers,” said Kimmel said. “President Trump said he is ‘with the people of Santa Fe in this tragic hour and will be with them forever’ — except for when it comes time to do something, then he will not be with them — and neither will any of the Congresspeople or governors who don’t ever do anything because they’re fearful that it will hurt them politically.”
