A 44-year-old teacher has been named the first victim of an elementary school massacre in Texas, in which a frantic father shared a photo of his missing 10-year-old daughter.

The death of Eva Meirelles, a special education teacher at Robb Elementary School in Ovaldi, was confirmed to have died by her relatives Tuesday night.

She is married to Ruben Ruiz, 43, a policeman with the local police department, and they have parents to a college-aged daughter.

Meanwhile, 10-year-old Annabel Guadalupe Rodriguez is still missing, with her father sharing a photo of her in hopes of tracing her.

Eva Meirelles, 44, a fourth-grade special education teacher, was killed in a massacre at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.

Meirelles has worked in the education system for 17 years and has been an associate teacher at the school for at least five of them.

Her Robb Elementary School profile describes herself as an active runner, hiker, and sometimes a cyclist. Her husband, Robin Ruiz, 43, is a police officer with the Ovaldi Unified Independent School District.

"I am outraged that these shootings continue," said Meirelles' aunt Lidia Martinez Delgado. These children are innocent. Guns should not be readily available to everyone. This is my hometown, a small community of less than 20,000. Her aunt, Lydia Martinez Delgado, said: 'I never thought this would happen particularly to our loved ones... All we can do is pray diligently for our country, state, schools, and especially everyone's families.'

 A mobile morgue was cut off outside the school earlier Tuesday as medical examiners began the grim task of identifying victims.

Ramos is shot and killed by a Customs and Border Patrol agent who realizes what was happening and runs to Robb Elementary School for help without needing support.

In addition, 13 children are being treated in the emergency room at Ewald Memorial and a 45-year-old man who developed "grazing."

Police said at a press conference on Tuesday evening that they would work to contact the victims of the deceased as soon as their remains were identified.

San Antonio Health University also confirmed that it had received a currently unknown baby and a 66-year-old woman in critical condition.

With 600 enrolled students, Robb Elementary School is located in Uvalde, Matthew McConaughey's hometown, 60 miles east of the Mexican border and 80 miles west of San Antonio.

Concerned parents were caught at the scene desperately searching for their children, and a video clip from the chaotic scene showed police arriving on the school campus with guns in hand.

One of the widely shared videos shows the suspected gunman approaching the school with what appears to be gunfire in the background.

Videos captured in the immediate aftermath of the shooting show mothers running frantically towards the school to collect their children.

Ted Cruz, the Republican senator from Texas, tweeted that he and his wife "are raising prayers for the children and families of the horrific shooting in Ovaldi."

Ken Paxton, the Texas attorney general, told Fox News that more teachers should take up arms.

"We can't stop bad guys from doing bad things," he said, adding that he "never understood that argument."
