Parents across the county are increasing a call for metal detectors in schools after a gunman killed 10 people Friday at Santa Fe High School.
High school seniors of many different Santa Fe church communities went forward with a previously-planned baccalaurete ceremony Sunday night in spite of a tragic shooting at the school Friday that killed eight students and two teachers.
Residents on Saturday grieved and attempted to pick up the pieces a day after at least 20 people were shot inside the halls and classrooms of the community's high school.
UPDATE: County officials late Saturday afternoon released the official list of the slain.
