A US mail carrier nearing the end of her shift was among those killed in West Texas shooting
(CNN)A US mail carrier whose vehicle was hijacked by a gunman was among the seven people killed in the nation’s latest mass shooting.
Law enforcement officials on Sunday identified the man who also wounded 22 people in the shooting spree Saturday in West Texas as Seth Ator, 36. He was killed by police.
The people killed ranged in age between 15 and 57, authorities said.
Mary Granados, 29
Granados was on the phone with her twin sister, Rosie, when she started screaming, the surviving twin said.
“It was very painful. I just wanted to help her, and I couldn’t. I thought she had got bitten by a dog or something,” Rosie Granados said sobbing in a phone interview with CNN. “I tried calling her name and she wouldn’t answer.”
The gunman hijacked Granados’ mail vehicle, said Silvia Torres, a spokeswoman with the USPS Inspection Service.
