At least 10 people killed in Texas School Shooting

A heavily armed student gunman was taken into custody after entering a classroom with the word ‘Surprise!’ and shooting 10 people to death inside Santa Fe High School in Texas this morning.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said the 17-year-old male suspect was taken into custody and a second person of interest was detained.

The majority of the deceased victims were students, according to Gonzalez. As many as a dozen others were wounded, among them a police officer who was reportedly shot in the shoulder.

It was reported by Chron.com, citing law reinforcement sources, that the gunman carried out the massacre with an AR-15-style rifle, a pistol and a shotgun.

Responding law enforcement officials later found pipe bombs both inside the school and at a site off campus, and urged town residents to be vigilant and call 911 if they see anything suspicious.

The Santa Fe Independent School District said in a statement Friday that authorities are in the process of rendering the recovered explosive devices safe. There’s no indication how many devices have been found.
