It’s been a year since a student gunman walked into Santa Fe High School and killed 10 people and wounded 13 others. Santa Fe: Life After the Shooting goes back to this small Texas community and shares the stories of the people affected – the first responders and survivors, the families heartbroken with loss – who are left searching for answers and forced to move forward with no easy solution.
The Day Everything Changed
Part 1: A student gunman entered Santa Fe High School on May 18, 2018. He killed 10 people and wounded 13 others, casting this small Texas town into the national spotlight for all the wrong reasons.
The First Two
Part 2: Officers John Barnes and Gary Forward were the first two officers to confront the shooter. John nearly died trying to protect hundreds of students.
Part 3: So little do we hear about the long-lasting effects on the victims’ families after a school shooting. This is the window into one family’s grief who is still learning to live without the woman they knew as Grammy.
Part 4: For some students who have had to return to Santa Fe High School, going back hasn’t been easy. Walking through the doors of the school serves as a constant reminder of the lives lost, their friends and classmates no longer there.
The Long Road Ahead
Part 5: Unfortunately, there are people out there who know what these Santa Fe families are going through. The principal of Columbine, two moms from Sandy Hook and the father who lost his daughter in a school shooting in Colorado share their experiences of how they continue to remember their loved ones.
Frustration Fuels Change
Part 6: For some of these Santa Fe families, they’re frustrated and angry. They want more transparency into the shooting investigation, more accountability from politicians. And they’ve had to fight in hopes of keeping the shooter in prison for the rest of his life.

Saddest day in our town
My Husband’s little brother who is a senior this year was in the art classroom with the shooter and my husband is currently a teacher at SFHS. This tragedy has shaken and changed our town in so many ways. Our brother experienced things no 17 year old should ever see. Thank you for shedding some light on what SF has truly endured and for giving the victims a voice. 💛💚
