Witnesses Recount Texas School Shooting

2018-05-19 16:35
Survivors of the May 18 attack on a Texas high school spoke about their experiences the next day. A 17-year-old student from Texas’ Santa Fe High School brought a shotgun and pistol to school on the morning on May 18. He entered an art class and opened fire, killing ten people and wounding ten others before being apprehended by police. Survivors of the shooting described their experiences afterwards. Some of the students tried to barricade the doors to their classrooms when they heard guns shots. Some played dead, hoping that the shooter would move on to find new targets. One substitute teacher ran out into the hall to see what was happening, saw the shooter, and pulled a fire alarm. One student, Paige Curry, told reporters after the shooting that she was not surprised to be part of a school shooting incident. “It’s been happening everywhere,” she told ABC7. “I felt—I’ve always kind of felt like eventually it was going to happen here, too.” http://abc7.com/santa-fe-student-after-shooting-eventually-it-was-going-to-happen/3491952/
