McConnell opens Senate session; mourns victims

SANTA FE, Texas (AP) – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says senators and all Americans “stand in mourning, sorrow and sympathy” with the town of Santa Fe, Texas, where 10 people were fatally shot at a school.

Three days after the nation’s latest mass shooting at a school, the Kentucky Republican opened Monday’s Senate session saying, “No community should ever be subject to such horror and heartbreak.”

He made no mention of taking any legislative steps to curb guns, something most Republicans have long opposed.

Dimitrios Pagourtzis is a 17-year-old student at Santa Fe High School. He is being held on capital murder charges in the killings of eight students and two staff members Friday at the school, which is south of Houston.
