Ten crosses now sit in front of Santa Fe High School representing each of the 10 victims that died during Friday's mass shooting.

The teenage boy charged with murdering eight students and two teachers during a gun rampage at a Houston-area high school on Friday studied previous mass shootings before carrying out his attack, sources told ABC News.

Attorney Nicholas Poehl said he was investigating media reports that his client was subjected to "teacher-on-student" bullying at the hands of the school's football coaches, which the Santa Fe Independent School District denied in a statement.

Among them was 18-year-old Santa Fe senior Monica Bracknell, a shooting survivor who hugged Mr. Abbott outside the Arcadia First Baptist Church and urged him not to use the tragedy as fodder in the gun-control fight.

"I never thought two years ago when I retired that I'd make 7,000 crosses in two years", Greg Zanis, of Aurora, Ill. said.

The mother of Shana Fisher, one of the victims, believes her daughter was specifically targeted.

The event was supposed to be a happy one: a celebration to honor those who were graduating from Santa Fe High School.

Signs reading "Santa Fe Strong" could be seen outside many local churches and businesses over the weekend.

Meanwhile, hundreds attended a service Houston's Muslim community held for Sabika Sheikh, a 17-year-old exchange student from Pakistan who talked about one day becoming a diplomat. He immediately waived his Miranda rights and is now in solitary confinement. And Rachel DeLadesmo, communications coordinator at Break the Cycle, previously told Teen Vogue that many adults don't even know the proper legal parameters when it comes to notifying administrators, law enforcement, child services, and other agencies.

In a statement, the family of the shooting suspect said they were "saddened and dismayed" by the deadly attack and "as shocked as anyone else". But this time, the graduates they were sending off to their next venture had just endured what was referred to as "pure evil" only a few days before.

He added: "Family and friends and God, that's what's going to get us through this".

What's more, the Santa Fe school had two armed police officers and had trained extensively in active shooter protocols, so it wasn't a situation where "good guys with guns" can solve the problem. Instead, they are looking for leaders to help the country through a slow-rolling epidemic, one that has claimed almost 175,000 lives since Sandy Hook, and so many other kinds of victims, as well.
