A second person, 18, in police custody, is believed to be a possible accomplice in Friday's shooting, a law enforcement official says.
Ten people were killed and several others injured in a shooting Friday morning at a high school in the southeastern Texas city of Santa Fe, a law enforcement official said on condition of anonymity.
Gunfire erupted at Santa Fe High School, about 20 miles outside Galveston, not long after classes began around 7:30 a.m. CT, officials said. Authorities later found explosive devices -- including pipe bombs and pressure cookers -- in and near the school, the law enforcement official said.
A male suspect, believed to be a student, has been arrested in the shooting, and a second person -- also believed to be a student -- has been detained as well, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said. Live updates on the school shooting Two law enforcement officers are among the injured, according to the source who spoke anonymously. One man is in critical condition with a gunshot wound in one of his arms, said David Marshall, chief nursing officer for University of Texas Medical Branch hospital. This is the 22nd US school shooting since the beginning of the year, and the third instance in eight days in which a gunman was on a school campus. Witnesses described students running from the school as they heard gunshots; they also described hearing an alarm at the school, though the sequence of events wasn't immediately clear.

At least 12 people from the school are being treated at three hospitals, authorities said.................
“The shooter pulled out a shot gun and began shooting.”
Shotgun? Isn't that one of those evil AK-47 style assault rifles?
Someone told me that if we just banned evil assault weapons, that would be the end of school shootings. Some little Nazi Bastard called "David Hogg."
Never the slightest media curiosity over the timing as it furthers their traitorous agenda.
A chart/timeline of these events might be revealing.
Why? You think nutty students coordinate these things?
Could be, here is a Sega 12 gauge.
We were just discussing this last night on the Q Thread........................
How could he carry, place & carry in Pressure Cookers AND a Shotgun??
Accomplice in custody.....................
You forgot the /s.
Another one of these threads had a couple freepers trying to tell us that these things just happen, and are we some kind of nuts to believe the Deep State facilitates/coordinates these things?
“Accomplice in custody.....................”
I’m actually surprised by that.
Usually by now, we’re being chastised for believing early reports of a second shooter.
Missed that thread, sounds like the thought is occurring to more than a few that this in not random NRA sponsored violence.
He and possible accomplice appear to be leftist ideologues...................
Demonic minds have created havoc for the human race since there was man. The challenge is to preserve freedom and protect life from those savages, both political and social, with homicide on their mind.
The true story is that the scum bag being summarily executed was a high level Viet Cong operative who organized and was a leader of the Tet Offensive in the City of Hue.
The Viet Cong devastated Hue and murdered a large fraction of the population.
The scum bag being executed had personally rounded up the families of dozens of South Vietnamese leaders and executed the entire families - men, women and children.
He was a terrorist caught engaging in acts of terror wearing civilian clothing and no uniform
By the Geneva Convention he was an enemy combatant caught engaged in acts of terror and war crimes in the heat of battle and subject to a lawful summary execution which he richly deserved.
Lém was captured near a mass grave with 34 civilian bodies. Lém admitted that he was proud to carry out his unit leader's order to kill these people. Having personally witnessed the murder of one of his officers along with that man's wife and three small children in cold blood, when Lém was captured and brought to him, General Loan summarily executed him using his sidearm,...
He needed killin'.
The AP guy who took the photo - a former Marine - related that the guy taking the bullet had just killed a police official along with his entire family. The fella doing the shooting was that police official's boss.
In 1969, Adams was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for the shot.What's unfortunate is that blights on humanity like Young and Holtzman managed to outlive good men like Loan and Adams.
But he felt terrible about the photo, which he didnt think was that good, and bitter about the prize, according to interviews he gave over the years.
He believed he had taken far more worthy pictures, and that the execution photo was viewed out of context by most people: The slain Viet Cong prisoner was captured after he reportedly killed a South Vietnamese officer, his wife and six children.
Adams believed he had destroyed Loans life.
Two people died in that photograph, Adams wrote in Time magazine years later. The recipient of the bullet and General Nguyen Ngoc Loan. The general killed the Viet Cong; I killed the general with my camera.
General Loan was a real warrior, Adams wrote in a Time eulogy for Loan. Im not saying what he did was right, but you have to put yourself in his position . He never blamed me. He told me if I hadnt taken the picture, someone else would have, but Ive felt bad for him and his family for a long time.
Loan, who later lost a leg in combat, was treated for the injury at Washingtons old Walter Reed Army Hospital in 1969, which outraged some people. Then-Sen. Stephen M. Young (D-Ohio) called Loan a brutal murderer and said his treatment in the United States was a disgraceful end to a disgraceful episode.
Loan was university-educated and had become a jet pilot before he was named national police chief. He was married and had five children. After the war, he made his way with his family to the United States and ran a restaurant in Northern Virginia. But the photograph stalked him. In the restaurant mens room, someone scrawled on the wall: We know who you are, you f
In 1976, he told a Washington Post reporter he was trying to think about the present and the future of my children. I have no time to think back or regrets.
In 1978, the government moved to deport him. Gen. Loan cold-bloodedly shot and killed another human being, Rep Elizabeth Holtzman (D-N.Y.) wrote at the time. By any standard what he did was immoral.
But Loan had local support and was never deported. Twenty years later, on July 14, 1998, he died at home in Burke, Va., at the age of 67.
One correction, the event happened in Saigon and not Hue.
