The three other children confirmed dead were named Uziyah Garcia, Annabell Guadalupe Rodriguez and Nevaeh Bravo.
The fourth grade teacher was another to die after the vile attack.
Lydia Martinez Delgado said her niece was killed. She told KSAT: “I am furious that this shooting continues, these children are innocent, guns should not be readily available to all.
“I never thought that this would happen to special loved ones. All we can do is pray for our country, our state, our schools and especially for everyone’s families.”

What happened in the Texas school shooting?
Ramos shot dead 19 children and two adults in the horrific mass murder at Robb Elementary School.
He reportedly crashed his car in front of the school and walked in around 11:30 am armed with two military-style rifles.
He had hinted at an impending attack on social media after buying the guns on his 18th birthday.
Although the tragic incident is still under investigation, authorities believe Ramos acted alone.
In addition to the dead, at least a dozen others were injured, including a 66-year-old woman in critical condition, a 10-year-old girl in critical condition, a 10-year-old girl in good condition and a 9-year-old girl in good condition.
The 18-year-old’s killing spree is the deadliest at a US elementary school since the attack on Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, nearly a decade ago.
The shooting also came just days after 10 people were killed in a mass shooting at a Tops Friendly Markets store in Buffalo, New York.
