At least nine people are dead following the attack.

Santa Fe, Texas is mourning after a mass school shooting has left at least nine people, the majority reportedly students, dead. But now a new danger has been revealed. According to local reports, there are possible explosive devices at three separate locations.

The first location is Santa Fe High School, the mass shooting scene. But two other locations are homes nearby, about 3 or 4 miles away. Reporters say they are told these potential bombs are related to the shooting.

The Houston Chronicle reports the death toll has risen to 10. That number was not confirmed at the local police press conference minutes ago.
