TX Attorney General Responds to College Campus Shooting

The following is a statement from Attorney General Greg Abbott:

"All Texas schools must be places of safety and learning. Lawless shootings on campuses will not be tolerated and should meet swift justice. Texas will do all it can to make the school environment safe for students, teachers and administrators.

Today's shooting is an example of the critical importance of school safety plans and emergency drills in all schools. Having a plan and practicing that plan can save lives when seconds count. We do know that Lone Star College submitted their safety and security plan to the Texas School Safety Center, confirming the campus had a critical incident plan in place.

I've instructed our Crime Victim Services Division to immediately make contact with the school and with families involved to offer whatever assistance we can provide."
