Santa Fe High School Received Nine Threats Prior To Shooting

The school district says says it’s working with the Santa Fe Strong ‘Safety and Security Committee’ along with District stakeholders to develop recommendations to keep students and staff there safe

Deputies from the Harris County Sheriff’s Office on the scene of Santa Fe High School, where a shooting occurred Friday morning.

Police records show Santa Fe High School received nine threats in the months leading up to a mass shooting that killed 10 people.

The police chief for the Santa Fe Independent School District wouldn’t detail the threats but says none of them had been related to the May 18th shooting that killed eight students and two substitute teachers.

Meanwhile, the school district in a statement sent last night says it’s working with the Santa Fe Strong ‘Safety and Security Committee’ along with District stakeholders to develop recommendations to keep students and staff there safe.

A 17-year-old student with no record of previous trouble is in jail and charged with capital murder in the shooting.
