A senior at Judson High School in Texas was allegedly killed by her ex-boyfriend in a murder-suicide, according to authorities. 

Police were called to a home on the 14000 block of Medusa in the early hours of the morning after reports of hearing gun shots.

Authorities believe that Emilee Hurst, 18, was murdered by her ex-boyfriend, Mark Villarreal, before he turned the gun on himself. Villarreal, 20, had also attended Judson High School. 

“It’s just a really, really sad situation,” school district spokesman Steve Linscomb told My San Antonio. “These students obviously are going to be in different kinds of relationships, and it’s just extremely sad that this ended this way, especially with this being so close to graduation.” 

Hurst was a member of the school’s dance team, and immediately after her death, her classmates mourned her passing on social media.
