Texas teen accidentally shot dead, ROTC member killed in class, officials say

-

Classes resumed on Thursday at Bellaire High School with stricter security precautions. A student died two days after shooting at a school in Texas.

Cesar Cortes, a 19-year-old ROTC junior, was killed in a school classroom by another JROTC member who showed Cortez a semi-automatic pistol. The 16-year-old gunman who had fled was arrested more than three hours later.

Bartlett said the accused gunman told friends what had happened but did not work with the police. The gun was not recovered, he said.

Kim Ogg, Harris’s attorney general, said the gunman was charged with manslaughter.

“You were friends,” said Ogg intending to kill his friend. “

“These are the first precautionary measures, and the school security and security committee is developing long-term, sustainable changes,” wrote headmaster Michael McDonough in an email that KTRK-TV had received. “Thank you for your continued support.”

Ogg said the investigation would continue. The authorities asked residents to help them find the weapon and asked them to report the weapon to the police.

“This is obviously a normal child who is now a violent perpetrator,” said Ogg about the shooter. “Whether he wanted to be violent or not, he killed someone. And that someone was a son, a student, and a friend, and that’s the collective loss of our church. “
