Student recounts Santa Fe shooting: 'I've always kind of felt like eventually it was going to happen here too'
In the aftermath of the Friday shooting at a Texas high school that left at least eight dead and 12 injured, one student offered a heartbreaking response to the violence.
"I managed to keep calm through it all," said Santa Fe High School student Paige Curry. "There was another girl who was just freaking out, they were struggling really hard to keep her calm. It was really scary." NPR reports that Curry took shelter to hide from the shooter, who has since been arrested.
A reporter for local TV station ABC 13 asked Curry whether there was a part of her that felt the horrifying events weren't real. "No, there wasn't," Curry said. "It's been happening everywhere. I've always kind of felt like eventually it was going to happen here too. I wasn't surprised, I was just scared." Watch the interview below, via ABC 13. Summer Meza
