LUBBOCK, Texas — The Lubbock Independent School District released a statement after two Lubbock High School students were among the four killed early Wednesday morning.
Felipe Madrid, 18, and Andres Madrid, 15, were identified by the Lubbock Police Department after the house fire in the 4100 block of 124th Street. Two other victims – 46-year-old Angelica Vasquez and 48-year-old William Boyles – were also identified.
EDITORIAL NOTE: The LPD press release spelled Anjelica with a ‘j’, however, her driver’s license spelled her name Angelica with ‘g’. We updated the spelling in our story to match the driver’s license.
The statement also said crisis counselors and therapy dogs will be on the Lubbock High campus for the remainder of the week.
“The death of Felipe and Andres Madrid is devastating news,” Lubbock ISD Superintendent Dr. Kathy Rollo said. “On behalf of the entire Lubbock ISD family, I express our heartfelt sympathy to their family, friends, and classmates during this very difficult time.”
