Sante Fe school shooting: Suspect 'was rejected' by victim Shana Fisher

  • Residents bring memorial items to Santa Fe High School in Santa Fe Texas where a gunman identified as a 17-year-old student killed 10 people mostly students

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".

Appearing on the Sunday talk shows, Patrick did not address details of the law enforcement investigation into Friday's shooting at Santa Fe High.

Her host family described their time with her as "a precious gift", saying they had even joined her in fasting during Ramadan.

And speaking from Karachi, Sabika's family told the LA Times they had been counting the days before she would return for the summer holiday.

Texas Holds Moment of Silence for School Shooting Victims
Another neighbor, Bobbie Owen, said Pagourtzis and his younger sister helped her carry in Christmas packages a year ago . Finally, about a week ago, she stood up to him in the middle of class to proclaim she would not go out with him.

"All I could hope for, for anybody is for them not to have to go through that tragedy but for them to come to that same outcome and that is to let God lead their lives", he said.

"I do ask the American government to make sure weapons will not be easily available in your country to anybody. If something like this happened again, our teachers would be ready". Her group will stress tougher background checks, suicide prevention, gun safety at home and so-called "red flag" laws that restrict gun access for people identified as potentially risky to themselves or others.

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.
