SANTA FE, Texas (AP) — At least two of the student victims of a mass shooting at a Texas high school tried to block the advance of a gunman and were killed when he shot through the doors.

A classmate of one of the 10 people killed at a Texas high school says Chris Stone and other students tried to barricade the door to their art classroom. Christian Riley Garcia’s pastor says the 15-year-old student used his body to keep a closet door closed within the room.

The article goes on to state the following:

[Student Jai] Gillard says that after they heard gunshots and smelled gunpowder on Friday, she and Garcia and other students piled into a closet. She says that Garcia used his body as a “barricade” against the closet door to keep the shooter from entering.

Additionally, the AP reports:

[Chris] Stone was among a group of students who blocked the door to try to prevent the gunman from entering their art classroom, freshman Abel San Miguel, who was in the class, told The Associated Press. The shooter fired his shotgun through the door, though, striking Stone in the chest, he said.
