The latest on the Texas school shooting

The latest on the Texas school shooting

Other ideas that Abbott mentioned were increasing the number of school counselors, creating incentives for students to share information about potential threats and evaluating an expansion of a state program that arms teachers.

At the first meeting on Tuesday, participants proposed expanding school safety training programs, bolstering threat assessment systems and expanding a pilot program created to screen for students, who might be a threat to themselves or others.

At least two of those wounded in Friday's mass shooting at Santa Fe High School were still hospitalized, including school police officer John Barnes, who remained in critical condition, said the University of Texas Medical Branch.

Another school banned backpacks to prevent hidden weapons from slipping through, while others changed dress codes to forbid heavy clothing such as the trench coat Pagourtzis was said to be wearing to hide his weapons.

Reuters reported that state officials are likely to consider installing additional security at schools and implement screenings to assess whether students have mental health issues.

Republican Gov. Greg Abbott has called three days of discussions after a shooting at Santa Fe High School killed 10 people.

Patrick has also called for arming teachers to prevent future school shootings. Abbott said he'll meet Wednesday with gun rights and gun control advocacy groups and Thursday with victims of the attack at Santa Fe High School and the November attack on a church in Sutherland Springs. She said teachers should be armed.

The Republican has been a staunch supporter of gun rights and worked to expand them in the state in recent years.

Aguilera says she's ready for classes to resume next week so that she can join with friends again "to show how strong we are".

They won more than any team in National Basketball Association history, but you didn't watch to find out if they won. The Rockets' margin of defeat Sunday was nearly identical to the number of fewer points scored by Eric Gordon , P.J.

And according to CNN, of those shootings, 22 have been attacks in schools that resulted in victims being hurt or killed in 2018 - equating to more than one school shooting per week.

"I believe that's what was behind" the shooting, Antonios Pagourtzis told the newspaper.

The alleged shooter, a 17-year-old student at the school, has been charged with capital murder and aggravated assault. His voice cracks as he describes how he told police to let him inside the school so his son could kill him instead.

Calls for tighter gun regulations in the U.S. have been prominent following the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida on Valentine's Day, where 17 students and teachers were killed.

Sentiments like those could give Abbott political cover if his roundtable discussions don't lead to major changes.

Patrick, who sets the agenda in the state's senate, attended the roundtable meeting.

But Texas is not expected to follow Florida's path in enacting new gun restrictions.

The discussions will start in Austin, and Abbott says they will include lawmakers, educators, students, parents, gun-rights advocates and shooting survivors.
