Third school shooting in the last seven days
Santa Fe TX is 20 miles from Galveston and 30 miles from Houston; the school has ~1400 students
Related: This is the last day of school for Parkland students
The shooter is a student who was armed with a shotgun and a .38 revolver
Pipe bombs also found
Earlier reports of an AR-15 appear to be false
Suspect walked into an art class and began shooting
Students heard fire alarm, possibly pulled by suspect to get access to more students exiting the building
#UPDATE There have been explosive devices found in the high school and surrounding areas adjacent to the high school. Because of the threat of explosive items, community members should be on the look-out for suspicious packages and anything that looks out of place.— Santa Fe ISD (@SantaFeISD) May 18, 2018

How is the loss of our children’s lives not urgently changing policy in this country? How are we going on without everything stopping? Without all of us walking out until we change this?— Laura Dern (@LauraDern) May 18, 2018

A few remarks from Parkland MSD Students, other remarks in the comments from 12dozenroses
Santa Fe High, you didn’t deserve this. You deserve peace all your lives, not just after a tombstone saying that is put over you. You deserve more than Thoughts and Prayers, and after supporting us by walking out we will be there to support you by raising up your voices.— Emma González (@Emma4Change) May 18, 2018
Get ready for two weeks of media coverage of politicians acting like they give a shit when in reality they just want to boost their approval ratings before midterms.— David Hogg (@davidhogg111) May 18, 2018

At least 8 students have been shot and killed at Santa Fe High School.— Cameron Kasky (@cameron_kasky) May 18, 2018
Prepare to watch the NRA boast about getting higher donations.
Prepare to see students rise up and be called ‘civil terrorists’ and crisis actors.
Prepare for the right-wing media to attack the survivors.
Donald Trump does not care about school shootings.— Cameron Kasky (@cameron_kasky) May 18, 2018
Donald Trump does nothing to stop school shootings.
Don’t talk to me about the ‘stop school violence act,’ because that does nothing to stop school shootings.
Donald Trump does not care about you or your kids getting shot.
