After Santa Fe massacre, Texas shooting survivors give lawmakers policy solutions

Santa Fe High School Student Was Shot in the Head but Survived By the 'Grace of God'

A 17-year-old student has confessed to killing eight students and two teachers, and injuring 13 others.

Sheikh, who had planned to fly home before the Eid festivities, had been flown back in a coffin.

The body of the teenager arrived at cargo complex of Karachi airport this morning from Houston, Texas through a private Turkish airline- TK-708- that was received by family members and officials of US Consulate at the airport, it said.

He told the BBC that he wanted his daughter's death to catalyse a change in United States gun laws.

Thirteen people were also wounded in a shooting that stunned the community and deeply affected Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta, a native of nearby Galveston who played against Santa Fe's football team while in high school.

Thirteen others were injured.

Survivors of last week's school shooting at a high school near Houston told gripping stories of dodging bullets, hiding from the attacker and seeing classmates get shot as they pleaded with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott. The focus is shifting Thursday to people closest to the recent violence.

Abbott said after holding discussions with victims, security experts, school administrators and advocates for and against gun control that he would distill the ideas presented to him and put a plan into action.

He Said he was well aware of the risks, but still wanted his daughter to avail the opportunity to travel to the US.

Mourners also gathered Friday in the Houston suburb of Crosby for 15-year-old Christian Riley Garcia who died in the attack.

She had seen the memorials on television, the familiar white crosses erected after each massacre, and now there were 10 of them lined up on her high school's lawn. There were 1,400 students in the school at the time of the attack.

Texas law states that guns can't be made accessible to minors, with exceptions such as hunting or when under parental supervision.

Nearly a week after the massacre in her Houston-area school, Johnson stood in the Texas Capitol Thursday and gave Gov.

Sheikh asked Trump to take action and keep weapons out of the hands of troubled, teenaged boys like Dimitrios Pagourtzis, the murder suspect in the Santa Fe shooting.
