A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH is in effect for Austin, Burleson, Lee, and Washington Counties until 10am. A few strong to severe thunderstorms cannot be ruled out through mid-morning. Damaging winds in excess of 60mph and large hail are the main concern.
In a press release by a family attorney, the mother of the alleged shooter identifies him as Tres Caffall.
The following is the statement from Linda Weaver through family attorney Tyler Moore.
"Our family was shocked and devastated by the tragedy this afternoon. Our thoughts and prayers go to the families of the deceased and the wounded victims. We mourn them and the loss of Tres. He had been ill. It breaks our hearts his illness led to this. Please respect our privacy in our grief."
