Report: At least 8 dead after Texas’ Santa Fe High School shooting


A suspect is in custody after a shooting at Texas’ Santa Fe High School, according to Cris Richardson, the assistant principal.

He told reporters assembled near the school that there was an active shooting, but “that person has been arrested and is secured.”  

Multiple deaths are being reported in Friday morning’s shooting at southeastern Texas’ Santa Fe High School, two law enforcement sources told CNN, citing preliminary information. Houston-based KHOU reported at least eight people are dead.

The shooting was reported at a high school in the southeastern Texas city of Santa Fe, officials said Friday. The school reported injuries on its Facebook page.

A gunman walked into an art class at Santa Fe High School and began firing what looked like a shotgun, a witness told CNN affiliate KTRK.

The witness told KTRK she saw a girl shot in the leg.

Patients from the school are being taken to a hospital in the nearby city of Galveston, hospital spokesman Raul Reyes said. He did not say how many.

Aerial video from the scene showed several police officers outside the school. Some were searching students and their backpacks.

Angelica Martinez, a 14-year-old student, told CNN she and her schoolmates were being evacuated at one point “like it’s a fire drill.”

“We were all standing (outside), but not even five minutes later, we started hearing gunshots,” she said. “And then everybody starts running, but like the teachers are telling us to stay put, but we’re all just running away.”

“I didn’t see anybody shooting, but like (the gunshots) were kind of spaced,” Angelica said, adding she heard about four shots.

The entire school district is on lockdown, district officials said.

Santa Fe is a city of about 13,000 people roughly 20 miles northwest of Galveston and 30 miles southeast of Houston.

The high school has about 1,400 students, according to

  1. When the truth finally comes out about all these school shootings, we will learn that a clique of communists was and is behind the whole thing, just to push forward the agenda of disarming your patriotic ass….
    Shoot now, or forever hold your peace….

  2. Horowitz IG Report deflect, do you think?

    Bad news just coming out on fbi and doj.
    bad news on democrats…..
    queue the shooter(s)

    May not be the only mass attack as they seem to happen when certain bad news about certain people is about to come out.
    They gotta control the narrative and shooters do that for them. They can instantly end all reporting on the coming storm and discuss only this shooter and How He was on the radar.

  3. Taking guns from Floridians is one thing (and many are actually snowbirds from the Northeast who may or may not love gun control).

    But from what I hear from EVERY NATIVE TEXAN I’VE EVER MET is this, in my own meme words–the Feds or whoever is gonna have to stage a false flag school shooting in EVERY school district including out here in my neck of the woods (heck it might even work in artsy-fartsy Marfa, the far west Texas lib-tard central) and Texans STILL will refuse gun control! (And, let me say, most Hispanics support this claim, legally here or not.)
