SANTA FE, Texas (AP) At least one gunman opened fire at a Houston-area high school Friday, killing 10 people, most of them students, authorities said. It was the nations deadliest such attack since the massacre in Florida that gave rise to a campaign by teens for gun control.
Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said he could not be precise about the number of deaths at Santa Fe High School, which went on lockdown around 8 a.m. One person was in custody and a second person detained.
An unknown number of possible explosive devices were found at the school and off campus. Authorities were in the process of rendering them safe and asked the public to call 911 if they see anything suspicious.
