Dimitrios Pagourtzis, 17, was identified as the person in custody in connection to the shooting at Santa Fe High School, The Associated Press reported.
Suspected shooter was injured but is cooperating with authorities. ATF records do not show that the student purchased the weapon used. It’s unknown at this time where he obtained the weapon and explosives.
CNN is now reporting nine students and one teacher were killed.
Pipe bombs and pressure cooker type explosive devices were found on the school campus and surrounding area. This could lead to a federal terrorism investigation, due to the explosives found. The identity of the suspect hasn’t been given yet, but this was obviously a premeditated attack. The shooter intended to harm not only students and teachers at the school but the surrounding community.
