At least 8 people were shot and killed during a school shooting in Texas Friday morning with the suspected gunman now in police custody, reports Fox News.
The rampage began shortly after 8:00am at the Santa Fe High School in Texas, with local media reporting the shooter “appears to be a student.”
“Details will be released as we receive updated information. Law enforcement will continue to secure the building and initiate all emergency management protocols to release and move students to another location,” said a statement from the school district.

“We thought it was a fire drill at first but really, the teacher said, ‘Start running,'” one student told Fox News.
“Now I am worried about everyone else,” added another. “I don’t even want to go to graduation now.”
President Trump commented on the shooting via twitter, saying “School shooting in Texas. Early reports not looking good. God bless all!”
