Governor calls for moment of silence to honor Santa Fe shooting victims

- Governor Greg Abbott has called for a moment of silence on Monday to honor the memory of the victims of the Santa Fe High School shooting.

Abbott asks that all Texans take part in a moment of silence at 10 a.m. on May 21.

"The act of evil that occurred in Santa Fe has deeply touched the core of who we are as Texans," said Governor Abbott. “In the midst of such tragedy, we pray for the victims and those mourning in Santa Fe, while we work to ensure swift and meaningful action to protect our students in schools across our state. I ask all Texans to join in holding a moment of silence tomorrow morning to remember the victims, their families, and first responders of the attack that took place at Santa Fe High School." 

Ten people have died after a gunman opened fire inside the campus on Friday morning. A list of names for the ten people killed, which included two teachers and eight students, was released on Saturday afternoon.

Early reports indicated ten people were also injured in the shooting, but the FBI said on Saturday that thirteen people were injured in total.
