The gunman accused of killing 10 people and wounding 13 at a Texas high school last week was in a state of mental confusion, his attorneys said Monday, as schools in the United States beefed up security for students returning to classrooms. Their actions enabled other officers to arrive and evacuate teachers, administrators and students, Trochesset told reporters.

"There's not just the one thing you can do that will stop this and be a cure-all", Bessent said.

"Roughly about a third of those that were triaged were for suicidal intention, and they're mostly female; females act in, males act out", Phillips said. Two teachers were also killed. The suspect was taken into custody.

The sheriff added that 200 law enforcement officers rushed to the school district in response to the shooting, and said he doesn't "believe" that any of the victims or those injured were shot from crossfire between the gunman and police.

Numerous aspects of the attack mirrored another American school shooting: The massacre at Columbine High School in Colorado in April 1999, when two teenage boys with weapons hidden under trench coats killed 12 students and one teacher. He said his granddaughter, a student at the school, was three doors down from where the shooting occurred.

"She worked at the school not out of necessity but for the love of teaching and helping others", he said.

Texas has 5.4 million students enrolled in its public schools and any changes it made statewide would be costly.

Senior Pastor Brad Drake said before Sunday's worship that the church's objective is to "offer hope and healing that we understand only comes through a relationship with Jesus Christ". "This has happened way too much", Wylie said.

School officials said they had received an outpouring of support from the community.

The suspect told an investigator he acted alone and spared people he liked because he wanted his story told, according to a probable cause affidavit.

Pagourtzis, who police said has confessed to the shooting, is being held without bail at a jail in Galveston. He's being held on capital murder charges. He has not entered a plea. Finally, a week before Pagourtzis went on his rampage, Shana declined his requests in front of her class having been pestered for so long. "I didn't want to upset anybody", Butler said.

Her father, Abdul Aziz Sheikh, has described his daughter as a hard-working and accomplished student who aspired to work in civil service and hoped one day to join Pakistan's Foreign Office.

The first speaker was graduate Aaron Chenoweth, who gave a short testimony about the trials and tribulations this graduating class had faced.

Another student killed, Jared Black, turned 17 last week and was supposed to have a birthday party Saturday.

Earlier Sunday hundreds paid their respects a mosque for Pakistani exchange student Sabika Sheik.

Ten people were killed, a lot of them students.
