  • As mourning Texans gather for a vigil word spreads of who was killed in the school shooting

Shana Fisher, 16, was reportedly in the art room where the shooting took place and was identified as a victim by her aunt on Twitter. Senior Bree Butler told NPR she was in history class when it began.

Police said there were no significant red flags that would have drawn attention to him, though the attack was clearly planned.

Asked about Rodriguez's allegation, a lawyer for the Pagourtzis's family said he hadn't heard about any such interaction between Pagourtzis and any of the victims and therefore couldn't comment.

Attorneys Nicholas Poehl and Robert Barfield, who were hired by the suspect's parents to represent their son in court, are urging the public not to rush to judgment.

"We are shocked and confused as anyone else by these events that occurred".

But the 17-year-old's family said the attack was "incompatible" with the boy they know.

Representatives of the school district did not immediately respond to questions about Rodriguez's comments.

Two women were shot and a pregnant woman was trampled during the commotion in the parking lot of Mt. Zion High School in Clayton County, Georgia, at 11:05 pm (EDT) on Friday.

Acevedo has called for stronger gun measures before, and on March 24 he joined in Houston's March for Our Lives, one of many marches across the country spearheaded by teen survivors of the February shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida. Though Pagourtzis allegedly wrote about his intention to carry out the attack, authorities have not indicated a motive for the violence.

"We are still openly investigating this fluid incident and want to provide the most accurate information available", Davis said in a news release.

Officials confirmed 10 fatalities in the shooting - nine students and one teacher.

Area hospitals reported Friday that they had treated 14 people for injuries related to the shooting.

"Sadly, I must yet again point out the obvious brokenness in our culture and society, such that children who went to school this morning to learn and teachers who went to inspire them will not come home", he said.

SIMON: And Texas Governor Greg Abbott spoke at a vigil Friday evening for the victims.

"We were on the ground, all piled up in random positions", he said.

A Facebook post on April 30 showed a black T-shirt with the words "Born to Kill" printed in white. Another showed a trench coat adorned with various pins associated with conflicting ideologies and Cthulhu, a mythical creature drawn from the work of horror fiction writer H.P. Lovecraft. So far, Philips said, the program has seen a 37 percent drop in referrals for students who received services.

Suspect Dimitrios Pagourtzis, 17, has cooperated with police, Galveston County Magistrate Mark Henry said.

Philips said the project has found students at West Texas schools possessing notes, maps, threats and other evidence that they may have been planning a mass shooting.

"One day you think you know this kid, you think you can hang out with him, you can joke with him", Ray said.
