A law enforcement official has identified a person in custody in the Houston-area school shooting as 17-year-old Dimitrios Pagourtzis.
The official was not authorized to discuss the shooting by name and spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press.
Authorities say eight to 10 people, mostly students, were killed in the nation’s deadliest such attack since the massacre in Florida that gave rise to a campaign by teens for gun control.
A woman who answered the phone at a number associated with the Pagourtzis family declined to speak with the AP.
She said: “Give us our time right now, thank you.”
Pagourtzis plays on the Santa Fe High School junior varsity football team, and is a member of a dance squad with a local Greek Orthodox church.
