TIMELINE: What happened that horrific day

On Tuesday, a Galveston County judge signed and filed an order for the 19-year-old to continue his commitment at the North Texas State Hospital for competency restoration treatment.

The recommitment order will be for up to another 12 months.

Last year, the state hospital treating the admitted shooter determined he was still not fit to stand trial after a judge ruled him mentally unfit based on three independent mental health evaluations.
