and i just ran as fast as i could to the nearest forest so i could hide. and i called my mom. >> reporter: police racing to santa fe high school. >> he's actually shooting. he's in the art room. we've got shots fired right now, guys. >> reporter: student peter matuza tells marcus moore he was right there when the shooter unloaded. >> he opened fire with a shotgun and shot one of my other friends in the head. her body fell down not too far from where i was under the table. that's when he turned like this and opened fire with the revolver. >> reporter: kids lining up on the field emptying their backpacks for officers to inspect. their hands on their heads. they were patted down one by one. with students shaken outside others hiding in classrooms. their parents getting the dreaded phone call. >> she called. she said, "mom, there's shots." i turned around, i said, "i'm coming, i'm coming." stayed on the phone with her the whole time. just kept talking to her, kept telling her to stay calm, stay
quiet, until the police finally let her out. >> reporter: by 9:00 a.m. the shooter had surrendered, but the danger wasn't over. the suspect wanting to take his carnage to a new level of evil. >> there have been explosive devices found in the high school and areas adjacent to the high school. >> reporter: tonight, 10 people dead, most of them students. others wounded in the hospital. and now the suspect has a mugshot -- 17-year-old dimitrios pagourtzis, a junior at santa fe high school. speaking softly at his arrive ry -- arraignment tonight on murder charges. >> are you a citizen of the united states? >> yes, sir. >> reporter: on his facebook page he's in a baseball cap with a peace sign. but about three weeks ago, he posted this photo of a shirt with the words born to kill. authorities say he kept
extensive journals. >> not only did he want to commit the shooting, but he wanted to commit suicide after the shooting. as you probably know, he gave himself up and admitted at the time he didn't have the courage to commit the suicide. >> reporter: police say he used two guns, a shotgun and a .38 revolver. they belonged to his father. but they have no theories yet on what drove him to open fire on his classmates. their stories now all too familiar. >> i was very, very scared. i had to have someone keep me calm. i managed to keep calm though it all. >> was there a part of you that was like, "this isn't real? this would not happen in my school?" >> no, there wasn't. >> why so? >> it's been happening everywhere. i've always kind if felt like eventually it was going to happen here too. >> chilling to hear her say she thought it would happen at her school. i want to bring in tom llamas. he's on the scene in santa fe, texas. we know the suspect is in custody. the police interviewing two persons of interest. >> that's right david. this is coming from the governor of the state of texas. he said there's two people police are talking to right now. one person on the scene and had a suspicious reaction to the events that unfolded. and another person they want information from.
just behind me, david, this is the family reunification center. this is where parents are picking up their children. children in the school at the time of the shooting. you have to understand there are a lot of parents who have a lot of unanswered questions. wondering where their children are. tonight we can report one of the victims was a teacher. david. tom llamas leading us off tonight from texas. tom, thank you. you heard tom report on the explosives left both inside and outside the school. authorities believe the suspect booby trapped the area. hoping to inflict more damage. tonight what was in some of those bombs as they search his home as well. abc's marcus moore also in texas tonight. >> reporter: authorities tonight are digging through the suspect's house looking for evidence and unexploded bombs. >> various different kinds of explosive devices have already been detected. one was a co2 device. another was a molotov cocktail. >> reporter: and tonight we're learning more about the teen's
background. the one time honor roll student has no criminal history. >> his slate is pretty clean. and so there simply were not the same type of warning signs that we've seen in so many other shootings. >> reporter: today's rampage marks the 22nd school shooting this year. at least 35 people killed. that toll might be higher without the bravery shown inside those schools. >> most mass shootings take under five minutes. having resource officers on the scene to engage the shooter is going to save lives. >> shots fired at dixon high school. shots fired at dixon high school. >> reporter: this week, a 19-year-old opening fire near an illinois gym packed with students rehearsing for graduation. a school resource officer coming under fire before taking that student down. just last month students at santa fe high school in texas joined a walk to protest school gun violence. today, parkland senior emma gonzalez tweeting -- "you deserve more than thoughts and prayers, and after supporting us by walking out, we will be there to support you by raising up your voices." santa fe students and families
are expected to gather for a vigil tonight at the high school. there are still so many painful questions about how this shooting happened and why. david. >> marcus moore for us in texas. marcus, thank you. this is hardly the first time the president had to address a deadly school shooting. he learned as presidents before him how much parents, students want this to end. it was a somber president trump today. >> this has been going on too long in our country, too many years, too many decades now. everyone must work together at every level of government to keep our children safe. may god heal the injured and may god comfort the wounded and may god be with the victims and with the victims' families. very sad day. very, very sad. >> i want to bring in cecilia vega tonight.
we know this president invited families from parkland to the white house. it's still happening. other presidents have dealt with this before. how many times has president trump had to address this? >> this is the fifth time the president had to address the nation in the wake of a mass shooting. it's an all too familiar drill. in this city now the all too familiar response likely to come, the debate over gun control here in washington. you said after that parkland shooting, just three months ago, those students right here at this white house talking to the president, demanding action. back then president trump said he would back stricter gun control policies. ultimately he backed away from many of those. the white house telling us no new announcements on gun control. >> cecilia vega at the white house. thank you. we're following the devastating story out of cuba. a passenger jet crashing after take off from the airport in havana. crashing into a farm field erupting into a fire ball. almost everyone on board believed to be lost.
miraculously there were survivors. our miami station is on the scene with dramatic pictures. here's abc's david kerley. >> reporter: the fireball, just after impact. and chaos at the cuban crash scene. what appears to be one of three survivors, according to state media, shuttled quickly to an ambulance. the jetliner, with more than 100 on board, slamming into a field of crops in havana. our affiliate wplg is on the scene. >> look at the crowd. >> look at the crowd. these are all cubans trying to figure out exactly what happened. many of them say they arrived here when they saw a plume of smoke. >> reporter: difficult to recognize the boeing 737, as water was poured onto the wreckage, just a couple of miles from the airport where the jet took off from. >> it would suggest something catastrophic happened either on the takeoff roll or right as the
aircraft was lifting into the air. perhaps an engine failure. perhaps a controllability issue. >> reporter: the jet, heading to the other end of the island, was leased from a mexican company. state-owned cubana airlines had grounded many of its own aircraft due to maintenance issues. the boeing 737 that crashed is an older model and had many previous owners. its maintenance records as well as the black boxes, may prove crucial in determining a cause. david. >> david kerley, thank you. there was an unsettling scene at win -- one of the trump reports near miami. stealing an american flag from the property. a man armed, reportedly yelling about the president. they shot jonathan oddi. he did survive. a search for a motive underway. some officials thinking he was there to lure the police into a fire fight. from hawaii tonight extraordinary images from the kilauea volcano. the cracks in the ground where lava is shooting into the air comes after the powerful eruption from the summit. the faa restricting flights within five miles of the crater. there are worries that bigger
