Another School Shooting – In Texas – 8 Dead Already
Ear Kandy Radio hates to report on this!!! There are at least eight people who have died as a result of a shooting this morning at a high school in the southeastern Texas city of Santa Fe, Harris County.
This is the third school shooting in eight days, and the 22nd since the beginning of the year in the United States.
A male suspect, who they believe is a student, has been arrested in the shooting at Santa Fe High School, about 20 miles outside Galveston, Gonzalez said. A second person — also believed to be a student — has been arrested as well, Gonzalez said.
This was reported from CNN.COM
Witnesses describe hearing an alarm and gunfire
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 witness who spoke to KTRK also said she heard an alarm. She didn’t specify if that was before or after the gunfire she described in the art class.
