Who is 17-year-old Dimitrios Pagourtzis, the Texas Shooting Suspect?
The 17-year-old boy named Dimitrios Pagourtzis who killed 10 students including a teacher in a school in Santa Fe, 48 kilometres southeast of Houston was like other teenagers, he loved dancing along with his Greek church group, loved symbology and Japanese history.
The authority investigating the shooting said that the young boy wore a trenchcoat while walking into the art class in Santa Fe school where he brutally shot nine fellow classmates and a teacher.
In a statement, Governor Greg Abbott said,"There were no red flags beforehand to indicate that Pagourtzis was headed for trouble."
In a Facebook post by Dimitrios Pagourtzis last month, he wore a black t-shirt with a caption “Born to Kill".
Personal journal seized by police after the shooting clearly states that he only wanted to shoot his fellow-friends but also commit suicide post shooting. But, Abbott said, “He didn’t have the courage to commit suicide.”

He even added that he usually wore a trench coat similar to the one he wore to the school when he opened fire on innocent students.
