Tragically, another school shooting happened this morning; this time at Santa Fe High School in Texas. At least eight people were killed with three victims being treated at a nearby hospital. With the shooting having happened around 8 a.m. Central time, the situation still is evolving, but the suspect is reportedly in custody. Today’s violence marks the 22nd school shooting in our country this year. What a heartbreaking, appalling statistic.
Our hearts and prayers go out to the students, parents, school staff and first responders in Santa Fe, Texas as they deal with the aftermath of this senseless mass shooting. May God provide comfort, strength and peace to all of them in the coming days and weeks.
Mayor Chris McBarnes
