The two teachers killed in the Robb Elementary School shooting have been identified as fourth-grade co-teachers Eva Mireles, 44, and Irma Garcia, 46. They were co-teachers in the 4th grade classroom.
The suspected shooter, an 18-year-old who attends a neighboring high school, was fatally shot by law enforcement after crashing his truck outside Robb Elementary and barricading himself inside a fourth-grade classroom, where he opened fire. Reports indicated that the suspect purchased two AR rifles days after his 18th birthday.
