A killer who shot a 20-year-old woman dead before turning his gun on himself at a Dallas college had been stalking her for 'a while,' according to her family.
Janeera Nickol Gonzalez was killed on Wednesday in a common study area at North Lake College after Adrian Victor Torres reportedly approached her yelling: 'You know who I am and why I'm here.'
A tutor, Nasrin Nanbakhsh, who was leaving her shift at the building said that she saw the man shoot the woman three times in a hallway.
'I saw a guy standing and there was a girl sitting in the chair and it happened too quickly. I saw him shooting her three times. It was too loud,' Nanbakhsh said.
'We've been trained how to handle these types of situations. I immediately ran back to the woman working, locked the doors and asked all the students to go back to the bathroom, turn off all the lights and be quiet.'
The campus was put on lockdown shortly after 12.30pm, when the gunshots were first heard.
Later, police found Torres' dead body in another university building after he killed himself in an apparent murder-suicide.
According to Gonzalez's family, the 21-year-old had an obsession with their daughter, but she didn't make anything of it as they weren't even friends.
Before hearing the news about their daughter's tragic death, the family rushed to the North Lake College campus to make sure that she had not been harmed.
Gonzalez was a Kinesiology student set to graduate in a few weeks, and said that she vaguely knew the gunman who, according to her mother, 'had been stalking for for quite a while'.
Mrs Gonzalez said that the pair never dated and weren't even friends, but that her daughter 'didn't make anything of it'.
Witnesses told the family that Torres approached their daughter in front of an art exhibit, yelling: 'You know who I am and you know why I am here.'
