A Texas school district where 10 people were killed in a school shooting in May has reportedly accepted donations of guns and ammunition.
The Houston Chronicle reported Tuesday that Santa Fe Independent School District trustees voted this week to accept a donation from community members consisting of eight AR-15s, optical sights, tuition for a shooting course and $4,800 worth of ammunition for its internal police department.
The article goes on to state the following:
A spokeswoman for the district said the individuals who donated the firearms wanted to remain anonymous. She also told the newspaper that the district received donations of metal detectors, which are set to be installed at each of the district’s four campuses before the next school year begins on Aug. 20.
Santa Fe ISD Police Chief Walter Braun told the Houston Chronicle that the donated AR-15s would also be custom built for officers’ patrols.
“This is only for full-time staff,” Braun said. “We’re not outfitting everyone.”
