The family of the woman shot on a Texas college campus on Wednesday has spoken out.

Janeera Gonzalez, 20, was shot and killed on the campus of North Lake College in Irving. According to an NBC affiliate, the shooter has been identified as Adrian Torres, 21.

Gonzalez’ family has has stated that Torres has been stalking Gonzalez for years. The student’s family told NBC 5 they've been told by detectives that Torres left behind a note.

"From what the detectives told us, that he was hearing voices and that he was going to go kill a girl that had hurt him," said Gonzalez's aunt, Maria Reynolds.

The Gonzalez family claims Torres was obsessed with Gonzalez. The two were never in a relationship. Gonzalez was dating someone else at the time of her death.

"He probably felt like revenge, like she broke his heart and it's not a fact, because they were not in a relationship. But in his mind apparently he thought they were," Reynolds said.

According to the report, there were no restraining orders or reports of stalking against Torres.

The shooting took place in a college hallway according to NBC News. Nasrin Nanbakhsh, a math tutor, told reporters she saw a man shoot a woman in a hallway.

"I saw a guy standing and there was a girl sitting on a  chair. I saw him shooting her three times," she said. "I immediately ran back to the room I'm working, locked the doors and asked all the students to go back to the back room and to turn off the lights and be quiet."

Torres then turned the gun on himself, taking his own life.

Gonzalez’ mother Lucia Gonzalez told an ABC affiliate, "There is no justice for my daughter.”
