Amid the violent shooting rampage carried out at Santa Fe High School last Wednesday, May 18th, that ended in 10 fatalities, Christian Riley Garcia, a 15-year-old freshman, managed to save the lives of a girl whom he'd recently asked out on a date as well as another classmate, by sacrificing his own. "All I can say is what I suspect as a father". "I don't know what happened", he said. Dimitrios' lawyers shared that they've been investigating "teacher-on-student" bullying, perhaps with Dimitrios' football coaches.

Among the Houston Rockets' plans to honor the victims, survivors and first responders of last week's shooting that claimed the lives of eight students and two teachers at Santa Fe (Texas) High School, owner Tilman Fertitta reportedly invited the school's entire senior class to attend Thursday's Game 5. "My son, to me, is not a criminal, he's a victim". "The kid didn't own guns". Dimitrios was subsequently charged with capital murder and aggravated assault of a police officer.

"In the midst of this hard time", the Santa Fe High School administration wrote in a letter to students extending Fertitta's invite, "we are appreciative of the outpouring support from our caring community".

Antonios Pagourtzis said his son never displayed any signs that he would be capable of such violence, explaining that he didn't fight with others, didn't drink alcohol and seemed to enjoy healthy pursuits such as working out.

He said that after the teen had been taken into custody, he and his wife were allowed to visit him for 15 to 20 minutes. "He said he'll be strong and help us see this through".

As for Shubert, he said it was "Definitely [the] grace of God, I had an angel on my shoulder and He's watching over me".
