A woman shot to death a teenager teaching kids in a temple in Amarillo, Texas, and then killed herself.

Police said Eloise Evans, 50, walked into a classroom in Temple B’nai Israel on Sunday morning and told two young children to leave. She drew a handgun and shot Zachary Weir, 15, multiple times and then turned the gun on herself. Police are uncertain as to Evans’ motive, but ruled out a hate crime.
