SANTA FE, Texas (AP) - Texas students are laying flowers and photos at the base of 10 white crosses outside the high school where a gunman opened fire on classmates and others. A 17-year-old student is being held on capital murder charges in Friday's fatal shooting of eight students and two staff members at Santa Fe High School. On Monday, students placed photos and flowers at the crosses erected outside the school for each person who died in the attack. More than a dozen others were hurt. The school is closed.

SANTA FE, Texas (AP) - A Texas mother says the deadly school shooting in Santa Fe that left 10 people dead wasn't supposed to happen in a state where "we're responsible gun owners." Christina Delgado says that after the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida, she attended town hall meetings, quizzed candidates running for office about their stance on guns and drove to Houston to join the March for Our Lives rally. Now school violence has happened just down the road from her home.

HOUSTON (AP) - Three people have been hurt and one person is reported missing in a fire at a Houston apartment building. Authorities say about 50 residents were taken by buses to shelter in a nearby church after the blaze broke out Sunday night on the city's south side.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - One of NASA's prime shippers, Orbital ATK, has launched a fresh load of supplies to the International Space Station. The Antares rocket blasted off from Wallops Island, Virginia, before dawn Monday. The 7,400-pound shipment _ a third of it research _ should reach the orbiting lab Thursday. There's a student cement-mixing experiment on board, and NASA is flying an atom-cooling chamber that uses lasers to get temperatures colder than space itself.
