“Born To Kill”: Dimitrios Pagourtzis, the Santa Fe School shooter who killed ten people in Texas on Friday, loved guns and Trump.
According to reports, Pagourtzis allegedly shouted “surprise” before opening fire on students and teachers at Santa Fe High School in Texas.
Witnesses told CW 39 Houston News that the shooter was wearing army boots, a trench coat, and a t-shirt with “Born to Kill” written on it.
More details via CBS News:
The suspect in a deadly shooting rampage at a Texas high school Friday morning has been identified as 17-year-old Dimitrios Pagourtzis, law enforcement sources tell CBS News. As many as 10 people were killed in the shooting Friday morning at Santa Fe High School south of Houston, officials said.
He (Pagourtzis) allegedly began his shooting spree around 7:45 a.m., killing at least 10 people and wounding a dozen more — a majority of whom were students — on the school’s campus. Police said he was armed with an AR-15 style rifle, a pistol, a shotgun and pipe bombs.
Social media accounts belonging to the school shooter show an individual with a strong interest in guns, President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, and Ivanka Trump. On his now-deleted Instagram account he followed 13 accounts, nine accounts devoted to glorifying guns, and four accounts devoted to the Trumps:

On his now-deleted Facebook page, Pagourtzis said that he was planning on joining the military in 2019. Screenshots of his Facebook page show that he posted images of the “Born to Kill” t-shirt and the trench coat covered in pins that he allegedly wore during the attack.
Some students claim that Pagourtzis was bullied by students and at least one teacher at Santa Fe High School:
(Note: As a nation we live with and tolerate a culture of gun violence. All the while any proposal to enact sensible reform to curb gun violence is squashed by the the NRA. Indeed, the NRA intimidates and bullies politicians and others, while spreading deception and misinformation to the general public. They are the equivalent of the 20th century tobacco lobby, merchants of death, terrorists claiming their product is safe while countless Americans die.
In other words, the NRA is America’s premier terrorist organization, and they need to be stopped.)
Bottom line: A Trump loving teen with a fetish for guns killed 10 and wounded 12 at Santa Fe High School in Texas.
