SANTA FE, Texas — The horrific shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas on Friday, May 18 has prompted Pewaukee native and Houston Texans star JJ Watt, to offer to pay for the funerals of the ten victims.

Watt has been very involved in the Houston community, raising more than $37 million to help people affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Ten people were killed and 13 injured in the school shooting in Santa Fe.

The alleged shooter used a shotgun and a revolver that were legally owned by his father. Two school resource officers were on the campus and confronted the shooter “early on in the process,” and he was arrested.
