Summit County leaders and others in the state reacted on social media and elsewhere with sadness, anger and grief over Tuesday’s mass shooting in Texas that killed at least 19 schoolchildren and 2 teachers. The gunman, 18, was shot to death by police.

“This country needs to wake the hell up and realize it has a gun problem,” Akron Mayor Dan Horrigan said.

The mayor noted that a 15-year-old boy died Tuesday in the city after being shot during an altercation outside a neighborhood home.
