A student from Santa Fe High School in Santa Fe, TX — now identified as Dimitrios Pagourtzis — opened fire in his high school today, killing nine students and one teacher, and wounded multiple others, according to national media reports Friday afternoon.

The governor of Texas,  Greg Abbott, said at a news conference this afternoon that suspect used both a shotgun and a .38 revolver in the attacks, both of which legally belonged to his father.

Reports have also surfaced that say several explosive devices were found at the high school and the surrounding areas, according to Chief Walter Braun of Santa Fe Independent School District Police.

The President has issued a proclamation instructing for flags to be flown at half-staff in honor of the victims of today’s shooting, stating that “as an act of solemn respect for the victims of the terrible act of violence perpetrated on May 18, 2018, by the authority vested in me as President of the United States by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, I hereby order that the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff at the White House and upon all public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and naval stations,” until sunset of May 22, 2018.

Santa Fe, Texas is near Galveston and Houston.
