Texas school shooting suspect facing 11 federal counts

Texas school shooting suspect facing 11 federal counts An attorney for an 18-year-old accused of fatally shooting 10 people at a Texas high school says federal prosecutors have filed 11 charges against the former student after previously indicating they would not.

If convicted, all 14 men could face life in prison.

On June 20, the teen was chased down by a group of alleged members of the Trinatrios gang. When he sought shelter at the bodega, he was dragged out.

After being beaten, stabbed repeatedly and slashed across the throat with a machete, Guzman-Feliz, ran back inside the store. Surveillance video captured the incident, including a person inside the bodega apparently pointing the mortally wounded teenager away from the store.

A person was then seen pointing, telling to run to a nearby hospital because 911 had been called and an ambulance was taking too long to respond. Guzman-Feliz died in an attempt to reach the hospital.
