SANTA FE, Texas (CBS/AP) – An exchange student and two substitute teachers were among the 10 people killed during the shooting at Santa Fe High School in Galveston County, Texas. Ten people were also injured Friday in what Texas Governor Greg Abbott described as “one of the most heinous attacks that we’ve ever seen in the history of Texas schools.”

The suspected shooter has been identified as 17-year-old Dimitrios Pagourtzis. Pagourtzis has been booked into the Galveston County jail and is being held without bond on charges of capital murder and aggravated assault of a peace officer. Additional charges may follow, the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office said.

Here are the victims of the shooting:
