The Santa Fe High School shooting suspect told police he spared certain students he liked “so he could have his story told”, a court document shows.

The gun battle went on for about 15 minutes before Mr Pagourtzis gave himself up, abandoning a plan to take his own life, the New York Times reported.

Police now say that eight students and two teachers were killed, with 13 people wounded in the attack, including one of the school’s policemen who is in critical condition.


It says he emerged from the school’s Art Lab 2 classroom at 08:02 on Friday, about 30 minutes after the first reports of a shooting, and surrendered.
