Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt has offered to pay funeral expenses for the 10 victims killed in the Sante Fe High School shooting in Texas, CBS affiliate KHOU-TV reports. The family of one victim, Shana Fisher, said they accepted his offer.

Watt is known for his humanitarian efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. He helped raise more than $37 million and handed out supplies to people in Houston in need of resources.  He personally donated $100,000.

Watt reacted on Twitter after news of the shooting broke Friday.  

The shooting left eight students and two teachers dead. Several others were injured.
