The teenager who opened fire at Santa Fe High School in Texas could have been bullied by students and staff and the accusations were dismissed without interviewing all relevant parties, lawyer Nick Poehl said in an interview. Fisher repeatedly told him that she wasn't interested in going out with him, but that did not stop the suspect from approaching her.

Ms Rodriguez claimed her daughter had been the first shot dead, but did not specify how she knew. "She should be getting her first vehicle, not a funeral".

Dimitrios Pagourtzis has confessed, police have said.

According to an affidavit filed in court, he waived his right to remain silent and admitted "to shooting multiple people".

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner said Sheikh continues to be a diplomat "because even in her death, she is pulling the relationships between Pakistan and the United States, specifically the Houston area, even closer".

Santa Fe, a town of 13,000, came together Sunday for prayer services at local churches and the traditional end-of-school baccalaureate service. Inevitably, its focus shifted in the wake of the shooting.

Rome Shubert's mother, Sheri, told Good Morning America on Monday that she had expected her son's suburban Houston school would eventually fall victim to a shooter. The NFL star, who tweeted "Absolutely horrific" in response to the shooting, has taken on philanthropic causes in the past, raising over $37 million for relief following Hurricane Harvey a year ago.

Pagourtzis's family said in a statement they were "saddened and dismayed" by the shooting and "as shocked as anyone else" by the events.

The spokeswoman for National Rifle Association, Dana Loesch, blamed the media for the shooting, in part. Almost all of these perpetrators are male, and they're young teenagers in most cases.

Police have not said that the Sante Fe suspect was taking ADHD medication.
