The teenager accused of fatally shooting several people at a Texas high school in May, was reportedly indicted by a grand jury Thursday on a capital murder charge.

Dimitrios Pagourtzis, 17, who allegedly opened fire in Santa Fe High School on May 18, “intentionally or knowingly” killed 10 people “by shooting them with a firearm,” Galveston court documents said, according to Fox 26.
