Dimitrios Pagourtzis was “mistreated at school,” his dad, Antonios Pagourtzis, told the Wall Street Journal. “I believe that’s what was behind” the shooting at Santa Fe High School.

The article goes on to state the following:

The father, who owns a Houston-based shipping repair company, said his family was distraught over the mass shooting.

“I only went to grammar school. I left from my village in northern Greece when I was 12. I only had the clothes I wore and an extra pair of boots,” he said.

“This country treated us well. I worked hard and became a shipowner. I had three ships, which I sold,” he added. “Now, our lives are shattered.”

According to the report, authorities say Dimitrios has admitted to opening fire with a pistol and a shotgun on students and teachers at teh school Friday morning. He is being held without bond at the Galveston County Jail.
