BREAKING UPDATE: Texas High School Shooter Dies

The latest information coming from Alpine High School in West Texas is that the female student who walked into the school and wounded a fellow student has died from her self-inflicted wounds.

“This community did not expect this. We don’t want this and we can’t explain it yet,” Brewster County Sheriff Ronny Dodson said in an interview with KWES-TV.

Brewster County is southeast of El Paso.  The school district has been on lockdown all day with students from the high school taking shelter in nearby churches.  They are being released to their parents.

Shots were fired earlier today in the school’s band hall.  Names of both the shooter and her victim have not been released, but through the sheriff, the shooter’s grandfather expressed bewilderment.  The family is not sure what would have provoked her taking a gun to school and shooting.

Schools in the surrounding areas were put on lockdown as a precaution.
