SANTA FE, Texas (Houston Chronicle) — A lawsuit alleges that a teenager accused of fatally shooting 10 people at a Texas high school in 2018 was able to buy more than 100 rounds of ammunition online because his age was not verified.

An amended lawsuit filed Thursday accuses the website of breaking federal law.

Dimitrios Pagourtzis was 17 at the time of the May 2018 shooting at Santa Fe High School.

Federal law bars licensed gun companies from selling handgun or shotgun ammunition to minors.

Those killed at the school include a Pakistani exchange student whose parents filed the amended petition.
