For the first time in our lives, we actually had to switch channels from Fox News in order to find out what’s going on in Santa Fe, TX with the school shooting that took place there this morning. Why? Because Fox News is busy covering a royal wedding that’s not even happening yet.
Here’s the latest on the Santa Fe school shooting…
Multiple deaths are being reported in Friday morning’s shooting at southeastern Texas’ Santa Fe High School, two law enforcement sources told CNN, citing preliminary information.
Someone opened fire at a high school in the southeastern Texas city of Santa Fe on Friday morning, officials said, leaving more than one person injured and students running from 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.
The witness told KTRK she saw a girl shot in the leg. Witnesses also described hearing an alarm at the school, though the sequence of events wasn’t immediately clear.
Patients from the school are being taken to a hospital in the nearby city of Galveston, hospital spokesman Raul Reyes said. He did not say how many or give details about the injuries.
