    Santa Fe school shooting: 10 dead and 10 wounded in Texas

    Ten people have been killed and 10 others injured after a student opened fire at a Texas high school, the state governor said.

    The attacker, who was arrested and charged with murder, was identified as Dimitrios Pagourtzis, a 17-year-old pupil at Santa Fe High School.

    He allegedly used a shotgun and a revolver taken from his father, who legally owned the weapons.

    Most of the dead are students, police said.

    Santa Fe High School shooting as it happened
    Texas Governor Greg Abbott said "various kinds of explosive devices" had been found at the school, 40 miles (65km) south of Houston, and off-campus. They included "a CO2 device" and "a Molotov cocktail", he said.

    Mr Abbott said police found information on the suspect's diary, computer, and mobile phone suggesting that he planned the attack and intended to kill himself afterwards.

    The governor said the teenager "gave himself up" because "he didn't have the courage to commit the suicide".
