Dimitrios Pagourtzis has been identified as the suspected shooter who killed at least 10 people with a barrage of bullets at a Texas high school on Friday, according to law enforcement officials.
Pagourtzis, 17, was a student at Santa Fe High School, about 30 miles southeast of Houston. He played football for the school’s junior varsity team and was a member of a dance squad with a local Greek Orthodox church, The Associated Press reported.
Pagourtzis is being held in the Galveston County Jail on capital murder charges with no bond, officials said.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said the suspect had a shotgun and a .38 revolver that legally belonged to his father. He said the suspect did not have a criminal history nor did he portray any warning signs other than some Facebook posts.
The suspect intended to kill himself but gave up and told authorities he did not have the courage to take his own life, Abbott said.
During a press conference on Friday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) said that the weapons used in the Sante Fe shooting were not legally possessed by the shooter and current information is that the weapons were legally owned by the shooter’s father.
Abbott said, “As you probably have heard, the weapons used in this attack, there are two weapons. One was a shotgun and the other is a .38 revolver. Neither of these weapons were owned or legally possessed by the shooter. It is my information that both of these weapons were obtained by the shooter from his father. It’s my information at this time that the father legally owned these weapons. I have no information at this time whether or not the father was aware that his son had taken these weapons from the father.”
And BTW, he was stopped by good guys with guns.
Shit bags like Pagourtzis don’t go after fortified targets. He probably didn’t realize the school had what little security it did, and he snuck in to shoot at unarmed students. Like Rand Paul said: “disturbed shooters “aren’t so disturbed that they’re going to shoot up the sheriff’s office. They’re showing up where there is no self-defense.”
And of course, the leftwing media jumps in with their own ‘facts’ and anti-gun rhetoric.
Again, this is a case where the nutbag announced his intentions on social media, but no one took him seriously.
He says he didn’t have the courage to take his own life? Great. Stand his ass up in front of a firing squad and do it for him.
Criminals don’t bother with background checks. I’m an NRA member, I’m armed and I shoot. According to the Left’s set of rules, some are more deserving of the Second Amendment than others, and they certainly know how to selectively exploit and politicize gun-related crimes.
