A shooting at a Texas high school that left at least nine students and a teacher dead Friday morning forced the $939 million Amoco Federal Credit Union to close its branch that is about two miles from the scene of the crime.

In an email sent to CU Times, Amoco FCU’s CEO, Shawn Bailey, stated, “This is obviously a very devastating tragedy for our community. Our commitment to the Santa Fe community extends beyond financial services so naturally this horrific event is difficult for all of us to process. Our deepest thoughts and prayers are with the Santa Fe community and our current focus is on those impacted by this tragedy, both directly and indirectly.”

At about 7:45 a.m., police responded to an active shooter report at the Santa Fe High School in Santa Fe, about 35 miles southeast of Houston. A 17-year-old male suspect, believed to be a Santa Fe High School student, and another person of interest are in police custody, according to national media reports. About a dozen other people were reported to be injured during the incident.
