“This is a heartbreaking day for all of us,” Sack said. “It’s gonna be tough. While on paper we may have nine victims… we have hundreds of others. Everyone who survived is going to take home trauma.”

Eight people, including the gunman, were taken to the hospital, Sack said. The adult woman died at the hospital, and the teen girl died at the school. The suspect also died at the hospital, he added.
