Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick - who raised some eyebrows when he mentioned shortly after the shooting Friday that a possible solution could be to remodel Texas schools to limit the number of entrances and exits - said the meeting exceeded expectations.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) said about the Santa Fe High School shooting, "Once again, Texas has seen the face of evil" ["Gunman kills 10 at Texas high school", front page, May 19]. More than a dozen other people were injured.
Rodriguez said that the week before the shooting, Fisher "stood up to him" by "embarrass (ing) him in class".
Dimitrios worked out and didn't drink or get into fights, he told the station.
"I know he had pestered her to go out with him", Timothy said.
"I want to take the bullet and save my friends", Floyd says.
"Four minutes is about the only timeline that we need to key in on", Sheriff Henry Trochesset said late Monday, offering new details on how cops managed to stop the gunman in Friday's shooting, ABC News reported.

"Even Donald Trump kept a town hall at the White House open to press following the Parkland shootings", Manny Garcia, deputy executive director of the Texas Democratic Party, said in a statement, referring to the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., that left 17 people dead. "Administration looked into these claims and confirmed that these reports are untrue". On Thursday, lawmakers will hear from victims impacted by recent shootings and their families.
As the horror unfolded, Pagourtzis roamed from classroom to classroom, taunting students and blasting away as they made ill-fated efforts to elude or hide from his barrage of gunfire.
"I'm nearly to the point where you nearly become speechless because these incidents are happening way too much", Turner added.
Steve Gomez, an ABC News consultant and former Federal Bureau of Investigation special agent in charge, said the make of these particular guns means the shooter would have had to stop and reload with more ammunition. One was critically wounded. "I felt like it's a pattern with these shootings, and nothing has changed after each one of them". "When people were running from the gunfire, the officers that continued to arrive. didn't run from it, they ran to it".
Texas Governor Greg Abbott is set to begin a three-day series of discussions with educators and law enforcement officials on improving school safety on Tuesday, days after a teenager killed 10 people at a Houston-area high school.
Pagourtzis, who was charged with capital murder, remains under suicide watch at the Galveston County Jail. He is just 17 years old, and two major Supreme Court decisions within the last two decades have ruled it unconstitutional to sentence a defendant to death, or impose mandatory life sentences if he or she was under 18 at the time of the crime.
"My granddaughter was three doors down from where this occurred in that school", Trochesset said.
Seventeen-year-old junior Shelby Aguilera said walking the empty halls Tuesday was "eerie", adding, "I didn't want to be there and I got sick to my stomach".
