At least 10 people are dead and 10 others injured, Texas Governor Greg Abbot told reporters after a shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas Friday morning. Nine students and one teacher are among the victims, a law enforcement official told CNN.

The latest: The suspect in custody has been identified as 17-year old Dimitrios Pagourtzis, reports CBS. He is being held without bond on a capital murder charge, per the AP.

What we know:

  • Explosive devices were found on and around campus, Santa Fe Independent School District police chief Walter Braun said Friday. Per ABC, "devices including a Molotov cocktail were found in a car and a home."
  • The shooter told authorities after the shooting that "he had intended to kill himself too, but that he lacked the courage," the AP reports.
  • The school, located 30 miles southeast of Houston with 1,462 students enrolled, was placed on lockdown at 8 a.m.
  • President Trump addressed the shooting late Friday morning, stating: "This has been going on too long in our country, too many years, too many decades now."
  • Texas Gov. Greg Abbott ordered flags to fly half-staff following the shooting.

From the scene:

  • "As soon as the alarms went off, everybody started running outside — and next thing you know ... you hear 'boom, boom, boom.' And I just ran as fast as I could to the nearest forest, so I could hide and called my mom," said a student.
  • "Run, baby. Run and hide,” a mother told her daughter while on the phone during the shooting.
  • A student, asked if there was a part of her that felt ‘This could not happen at my school?’” the student replied: “No. It’s been happening everywhere. I’ve always felt it would eventually happen here, too.”

Several students from the Parkland, Florida shooting in February reached out to today's survivors on social media: "Not a single one of you should know me ... But you do because we come from one of the hot school shootings of the month," wrote Parkland survivor Cameron Kasky. "... Another community attacked that will only be further attacked by the NRA. Welcome to America, folks. This happens here."

The impact: Today's shooting marks the fourth deadliest shooting since the Columbine massacre, meeting the 2015 Umpqua Community College, Roseburg, Oregon that also left 10 dead.

Joe Biden's campaign released his 2019 tax returns on Tuesday, showing that he and his wife, Jill, paid nearly $300,000 in federal taxes last year.

Why it matters: The release, timed just hours before the first presidential debate, comes days after a bombshell New York Times report said that President Trump paid only $750 in federal taxes in 2016 and 2017. Biden's team is hoping to make the tax contrast a sticking point during their showdown.

New York City's coronavirus positivity rate has ticked up to 3.25%, its highest since June, Mayor Bill de Blasio said at a news conference on Tuesday.

Why it matters: The jump — from 1.93% on Monday — came on the first day that public elementary classrooms reopened in the city after months of closures, but guidelines state that all public schools will have to shut if the citywide seven-day positivity rate stays above 3%.
