The report of the shooting prompted brief lockdowns at Oak Run Middle School, Veramendi Elementary School, and New Braunfels Christian Academy.

A 43-year-old woman — believed to be the shooter — and a 10-year-old boy were both found dead with fatal gunshot wounds.

A 16-year-old girl was found conscious and breathing with a serious gunshot wound.  She was taken to University Hospital.
