Eight people were killed by a gunman at Santa Fe High School south of Houston on Friday morning. The shooter was arrested.
A shooting at Santa Fe High School 30 minutes south of Houston on Friday morning has left eight people dead, the Houston Chronicle reports. A source said the gunman was a male. The shooter has been “arrested and secured,” said assistant principal Dr. Cris Richardson. One student told TV station KTRK she was inside the school at about 7:45 a.m. when fire alarms began sounding and students began leaving their classes. As they departed, she believed she heard shots being fired.
Officers in tactical gear have been deployed into the school. Richardson said he could not confirm whether there was more than one shooter. “We hope the worst is over,” he said.
