(RNN) – Sabika Sheikh, a Pakistani exchange student, is one of the student victims in Friday's shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas.

A gunman killed at least 10 and wounded another 10 in the shooting.

The deceased have been identified as:

  • Sabika Sheikh
  • Shana Fisher
  • Angelique Ramirez
  • Christian Riley Garcia
  • Jared Black
  • Christopher Jake Stone
  • Aaron Kyle McLeod.
  • Glenda Anne Perkins
  • Cynthia Tisdale
  • Kimberly Vaughan

The Pakistan embassy in Washington confirmed Sheikh's death in a series of tweets.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with Sabika's family and friends," Pakistani ambassador Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry said.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Sheikh offered his condolences to Sheikh's family.

"Sabika's death and that of the other victims is heartbreaking and will be mourned deeply both here in the United States, and in Pakistan," Pompeo said in a statement.

Stone played football and video games. He was killed in the art class where the shooting began.

His sister, Mercedes Stone, remembered Stone as adventurous and willing to try anything, according to CNN.

KHOU confirmed with family Ramirez was one of the victims.

KHOU also identified Vaughan as a victim. Vaughan's mother said she was in art class during the shooting. 

Fisher was also gunned down in that art class killed. She was just 16 years old.

Her mother told CNN Fisher may have been targeted because she rejected the gunman's request to date him. She also said the gunman previously dated Fisher's best friend.

The McLeod family confirmed Aaron Kyle McLeod was among the victims.

Two substitute teachers, Perkins and Tisdale, lost their lives in the shooting.

A local dance studio, TNT Dance Xplosion, where her daughter had been a member, posted on Facebook: "Ms. Ann (Perkins) has passed away as a result of today's tragic events. She was an amazing mom and an adored substitute who was loved by all."

Tisdale's niece, Leia Olinde, told the Associated Press Tisdale was wonderful and loving.

"I’ve never met a woman who loved her family so much," Olinde said.
