SANTE FE, Texas - Parents received frantic phone calls and text messages from their kids Friday morning concerning an active shooter at Santa Fe High School.
While some were lucky to speak to their kids and hear they were OK, others were waiting patiently to hear from theirs.
KHOU 11 Reporter Jason Miles interviewed Sonia Lopez live on camera while she waited to hear from her daughter, Sarah Salazar, who she says was in the classroom where the shooting took place.
