Santa Fe High School Shooting Suspect Spared Students He Liked So They Could Tell His Story
Alleged Santa Fe High School shooter Dimitrios Pagourtzis told police he did not shoot students he liked because he wanted some to live to make sure his story was told.
That information was found in a Probable Cause Affidavit & Complaint, released Friday evening, that includes Pagourtzis’ remarks to an officer after his arrest.
According to the filing: “Affiant has also learned from Capt. Meadows that Dimitrios was interviewed and he gave a statement admitting to shooting multiple people inside the Santa Fe High School with the intent on killing people.”
The report also notes the suspect dressed in a trench coast and had a Remington 870 and a .38 caliber pistol.
Then, it includes this ominous line about why some students were spared: “Dimitrios advised he did not shoot students he did like so he could have his story told.”
