10 killed, 10 hurt in Texas school shooting

Shooter says he did not have courage to take his own life

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott says 10 people are dead and 10 more wounded after a shooting at a high school in the town of Santa Fe.

Abbott called Friday's shooting "one of the most heinous attacks that we've ever seen in the history of Texas schools."

He says explosive devices including a molotov cocktail had been found in the suspected shooter's home and a vehicle as well as around the school and nearby.

The governor says the suspect said he originally intended to commit suicide but gave himself up and told authorities he didn't have the courage to take his own life.

Abbott said there are "one or two" other people of interest being interviewed about the shooting.
