(CNN/AP) — There were 10 people shot and killed in Friday’s shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas. At least 13 others were wounded.
All 10 of those killed have been identified, according to a statement from First Assistant District Attorney Kevin Petroff in Galveston County. Initially, authorities said nine students and one teacher were killed. They updated that information Saturday, saying two teachers and eight students were killed.
Houston Texans defensive end JJ Watt has offered to pay for the funerals of the victims, according to a Houston Texans spokeswoman.
Here’s what we know about those who died:
Cynthia Tisdale was a substitute teacher at Santa Fe High School, her family told CNN. Her niece, Leia Olinde, said the family was notified of her death Friday night.
Tisdale’s brother-in-law, John Tisdale, said in a Facebook post Friday night that she was a member of the Anchor Bible Baptist Church in Pharr, Texas.
John Tisdale also said in his post that his sister-in-law’s husband, William Recie Tisdale, is “in bad health with a terminal lung disease.” The couple has four children.
Cynthia Tisdale’s son, Recie Tisdale, told The Washington Post that his mother loved children and teaching.
“She started substitute teaching because she loved to help children,” he told the newspaper. “She didn’t have to do it. She did it because she loved it.”
Recie Tisdale is a police detective in League City, 10 miles away from Santa Fe, where the shooting took place.
The Pakistani Embassy in Washington confirmed on Facebook that 17-year-old Sabika Sheikh, an exchange student, was killed in Friday’s shooting and that Ambassador Aizaz Chaudhry had spoken to the girl’s father, “expressing heartfelt condolences.”
“Ms. Sheikh was in Texas as part of the Youth Exchange & Study (YES) Programme,” the embassy said in a statement to CNN. “Our thoughts and prayers are with Sabika’s family and friends.”
Her father, Aziz Sheikh, told CNN that his daughter “loved to read,” that she enjoyed studying US history “to learn from the best,” and that she wanted to grow up to become a diplomat to “make Pakistan proud.”
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Sabika was “helping to build ties” between the United States and her native country and offered his condolences to her family and friends. “Sabika’s death and that of the other victims is heartbreaking and will be mourned deeply both here in the United States, and in Pakistan,” Pompeo said in a statement.
US Ambassador to Pakistan David Hale tweeted a statement on Sabika’s death.
“This morning, I called the family of Sabika Sheikh and offered my deepest condolences. As an exchange student, Sabika was a youth ambassador, a bridge between our people and cultures. All of us at the US Mission in Pakistan are devastated by and mourn her loss. We will honor her memory.”
Sabika’s body will be sent to Pakistan on Monday, according to Pakistan’s consul general in Texas, Aisha Farooqui.
“There is a general impression that the life is safe and secure in America. But this is not the case,” Aziz Sheikh told AFP.
Chris Stone, a 17-year-old junior at Sante Fe High School, was killed in the shooting, sister Mercedez Stone said.
Her younger brother was “adventurous” and “willing to try anything,” including parasailing, jet skiing, ziplining and hiking in the mountains, she said.
Chris played football and enjoyed video games.
“Being a brother was his best job,” she said. “Although he was the youngest, he definitely protected his sisters as if he was the oldest. He was always there if someone needed someone to listen or some cheering up.”
Chris was “definitely the life of the party, and one of the most understanding, open-minded kids I know,” Mercedez Stone said.
Jared Black turned 17 three days before the shooting, and he was scheduled to have a birthday party Saturday.
Instead, he was one of those killed in Friday’s mass shooting, according to his stepmother, Damita Kilgore.
Jared spent a memorable portion of the summer with his dad, two brothers and stepmom in California, according to family friend Elizabeth Ann McGinnis, who is serving as a spokeswoman for the family.
McGinnis established a GoFundMe account on behalf of the family to help them pay for flights from their home in California for the funeral.
McGinnis was with Jared’s father when he received the news, she said.
His father “sat in misery for 13 hours not knowing if (Jared) was one of the victims,” she said. “Then he got the devastating news after 6 p.m.”
Shana Fisher turned 16 just 10 days before she died, her aunt Ericha Fisher Farris said in a Facebook tribute to her niece.
Shana was in art class when she was killed, her family said on social media.
Farris said her niece should be doing all the things teenagers do.
“She should be worrying about getting her drivers license, making plans for summer break, maybe start thinking junior year and making plans for college and what she wants be when she grows up,” Farris said.
Shana had a younger sister, her aunt said.
“Life was not supposed to end like this for our sweet girl,” Farris said.
Shana’s mother, Sadie Baze, told CNN she keeps expecting her daughter to walk through the front door, “but she’s never going to walk through the front door again.”
Student Kimberly Vaughan’s mother, Rhonda Hart, initially posted on Facebook that Kimberly was in art class during the attack, and said she had been unable to find her.
In a release Saturday, Galveston County District Attorney Jack Roady confirmed that Kimberly was among the deceased.
Kimberly’s mother has since updated her Facebook bio with the hashtags #fightforkim, #kimberlyjessica and #oneof10
Glenda Anne Perkins
Perkins for years had been a substitute teacher at Santa Fe High School, where her grandchildren are students.
Student Jay Mann, a junior, tells the Houston Chronicle that Perkins always had a smile on her face, took the time to learn students’ names and became part of the fabric of the school.
Mann says she had a great attitude and “never got mad at anybody for doing something stupid.”
An all-female Galveston Mardi Gras krewe, Tutu Live Krewe, has posted on Facebook that Perkins, along with her daughter, was a member of their marching group.
The senior pastor at Dayspring Church says Ramirez was a member of the Santa Fe church’s youth ministry.
Pastor Brad Drake says she had occasionally accompanied a younger brother to the ministry at the church where her parents are among the some 150 people to attend Sunday services.
Drake on Sunday described the 15-year-old as “a sweet young lady, had a style all of her own.” He says she “almost always had a new hairstyle.”
An aunt, Sylvia Pritchett, said in a Facebook post she has “a broken heart and a soul that just can’t process all this right now.”
Aaron Kyle McLeod
McLeod, a freshman who went by Kyle, could always be counted on to make light of any situation, said close friend Kali Reeves, who added she wouldn’t have been surprised if the 15-year-old “made a joke about getting shot” if he were still alive.
Reeves, 15, said she knew McLeod for years and became close friends with him in the eighth grade. She said he always had a smile on his face and loved to hang out with his friends.
“He was never one to be a sad or down person, he always had to joke or laugh about things,” she said. “He was just outgoing and super sweet. He definitely didn’t deserve this.”
Reeves heard that her friend had been shot as she was evacuating Santa Fe High School. She joked to her boyfriend that if she FaceTimed McLeod, he would have “made a joke about him getting shot,” adding that “he just always looked on the bright side of things.”
Reeves said she texted McLeod throughout the day to check up on him. She sent him one final text, saying she hopes he “gets better.” Shortly after, she checked Facebook and learned he was one of the 10 killed.
Christian Riley Garcia
Garcia described himself as a history junky who wanted to join the Army.
Student Jai Gillard, a 14-year-old freshman, tells The Associated Press that Garcia always sat next to her in art class, and had asked her on a date recently.
She says he was “always happy” and “very sweet.”
Gillard says that after they heard gunshots and smelled gunpowder on Friday, she and Garcia and other students piled into a closet. She says that Garcia used his body as a “barricade” against the closet door to keep the shooter from entering.
Ashley Fonseca says her 15-year-old cousin always came to family get-togethers at a lake in Crosby, Texas, and was loved by everyone.
The church in Crosby where Garcia and his parents and younger sister are members was planning a Monday evening vigil to honor what the church describes as Garcia’s “heroic act.”
Pastor Keenan Smith said law enforcement told Garcia’s parents that Garcia was shot through the door he was guarding. He said that because of Garcia’s “sacrifice, others were saved.”
