Shooter Injures Four at Texas High School; Student Taken into Custody

HeadlineOct 07, 2021

A school shooting in Arlington, Texas, Wednesday left four people injured. The suspect, an 18-year-old student, has been taken into custody. The attack sparked renewed calls to tighten Texas’s gun laws. Last month, the state’s permitless gun law went into effect, which allows people to carry firearms without a license as long as they have no priors with state or federal law.
