Sante Fe school shooting: Suspect 'was rejected' by victim Shana Fisher

Dimitrios Pagourtzis was taken into custody and identified as the suspect in the deadly school shooting in Santa Fe

He is alleged to have used his father´s legally owned shotgun and revolver in Friday´s rampage. And Rachel DeLadesmo, communications coordinator at Break the Cycle, previously told Teen Vogue that many adults don't even know the proper legal parameters when it comes to notifying administrators, law enforcement, child services, and other agencies.

"He kept making advances on her and she repeatedly told him no", Sadie Rodriguez told the Los Angeles Times via Facebook Messenger. "This is not a political issue. This is not a gun law issue".

"It's a this-kid-was-able-to-get-into-the-school-very-easily issue."

"Win a Texas-made shotgun!" Thirteen others were wounded.

"We have incredible, heinous violence as a game, two hours a day in front of their eyes. But even better than that is four to five guns to one", he told CNN.

"We need to harden the target ... we need to get down to one or two entrances into our schools". You have the necessary exits for fire of course but we have to follow our students into our schools so we can put eyes on them.

If I, as a parent of teens, allow their friends to drink at my home, negligently let them leave in their auto and they end up hitting and killing others, I am legally responsible for the activity.

Congregations in this deeply religious community near Houston gathered on Sunday for their first worship services since the attack.

Among them was 18-year-old Santa Fe senior Monica Bracknell, a shooting survivor who hugged Mr. Abbott outside the Arcadia First Baptist Church and urged him not to use the tragedy as fodder in the gun-control fight.

Classmates at the school in Santa Fe, Texas described Pagourtzis as a quiet loner who played on the football team.

"It was hard when I started school because I didn't know anybody, but then I met Sabika".

Pagourtzis has provided authorities with little information about the shootings, his attorney Nicholas Poehl said, adding: "Honestly because of his emotional state, I don't have a lot on that".

"We can't just keep going the way that we are, because it's just going to keep happening", she said. Her body is to be returned to her family in Karachi.

In the Santa Fe High School shooting, restrictions on bump stocks, assault weapons and high-capacity magazines and more strident background checks would not have affected suspect Dimitrios Pagourtzis' ability to obtain weapons. The family said it was cooperating with authorities. He is being held on capital murder charges.

"There was a teacher next door, a Marine, who saw what was going on, slammed the door, locked his door, protected his students", he said.

"It has been brought to the District's attention that several sources are falsely reporting claims about SFISD high school coaches and bully-like behaviors toward the student shooter", said the district's statement. Mental health support was to be provided throughout the district, along with a toll-free crisis hotline.
