The shootings came more than a month after Abbott passed a new state law that allowed most of Texas to carry a pistol in public without proper training and permission.

Republican Senator Ted Cruz said he was praying for the victims and the school.

“I know we are all rising in prayer. Students, teachers, first responders, parents,” he said. “In so many schools, these numbers are so high that we thank first responders for their courage and heroes. Thank you and hope that all the students or persons who have been injured survive.”

Around Texas, other politicians and celebrities responded to the shooting.
