DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
A teacher who was killed in the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas on Tuesday has been identified.
Eva Mireles, 44, worked in the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District for 17 years, her aunt, Lydia Martinez Delgado, told ABC7. She was also identified by relatives to the Associated Press and The New York Times.
She was a fourth-grade teacher who loved running and hiking, according to her teacher bio.
“I have a supportive, fun, and loving family, which includes a UCISD officer (Ruiz), college graduate daughter (Adalynn), and 3 furry friends(Callie, Kane,& Koda),” Mireles wrote in her bio.
Delgado also confirmed her niece’s death in a Facebook post on Tuesday, writing in part, “One thing that’s certain is that my beautiful niece did not survive this coward’s actions.”
“I’m furious that these shootings continue. These children are innocent. Rifles should not be easily available to all. This is my hometown, a small community of less than 20,000. I never imagined this would happen to especially loved ones,” Delgado said in a statement to ABC7. “All we can do is pray hard for our country, state, schools, and especially the families of all.”
Mireles’ cousin, Klarissa Quiller, also issued a statement on Facebook, writing, “This world is so cruel. My heart is hurting and I have no words. How someone can be so evil to hurt innocent people/children is mind-blowing!💔 Please continue to pray for our beautiful cousin’s soul that was lost in this tragedy along with all the babies.”
