“Multiple fatalities” are being reported at a school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas. It’s the 22nd school shooting of 2018. As usual in the early aftermath of a shooting, the details aren’t clear and reporting may shift, but CNN reports that:
A suspect in the shooting at Santa Fe High School has been arrested, assistant principal Cris Richardson told reporters near the school.An armed person walked into an art class at Santa Fe High School and began firing what looked like a shotgun, a witness told CNN affiliate KTRK.
And now we wait for the usual routine of Republicans offering thoughts and prayers but no action to stop the next school shooting.
Local authorities say eight people have been killed, CNN is reporting.
And indeed, Donald Trump has done just that. On Twitter, the Comforter-in-Chief blathered, “Early reports not looking good. God bless all!” Not looking good? It’s a potential mass murder, but Trump sounds like he’s talking about the home team being down 3 runs heading into the bottom of the 9th.
