There were three other victims including the CHS Assistant. Principal, a coach, and teacher.
LISD says he did not have a legitimate reason to be on campus, and he was arrested and served with a criminal trespass warning. LISD says the doors to CHS are unsecured. They say since the new bond passed they will be able to now have controlled access on campus.
Police say Watters has a medical condition.
He remains behind bars with two charges. He is jailed on a $30,000 bond.
