Sadie Rodriguez, mother of Shana Fisher, 16, told the newspaper that her daughter rejected four months of aggressive advances from accused shooter Dimitrios Pagourtzis, 17, at the Santa Fe High School.In March, a 17-year-old Maryland high school student used his father's gun to shoot and kill a female student with whom he had been in a recently ended relationship.Classmates at Santa Fe High School, which has some 1,460 students, described Pagourtzis as a quiet loner who played on the school's football team.The suspect in Friday's attack began by firing the shotgun through an art classroom door, shattering a glass pane and sending panicked students to the entryway to block him from getting inside, witnesses said. Pagourtzis fired again through the wooden part of the door and fatally hit a student in the chest.He then lingered for about 30 minutes in a warren of four rooms, killing seven more students and two teachers before exchanging gunfire with police and surrendering, officials said.Pagourtzis' attorney Nicholas Poehl said he was investigating whether the suspect endured any "teacher-on-student" bullying after reading reports of his client being mistreated by football coaches.
