One of the two teen students slain Southern California school shooting has been identified.
The victim was identified as Gracie Anne Muehlberger who had just turned 15 years old on Oct. 10, the Los Angeles County coroner confirmed to The Post on Friday.
Muehlberger, along with a 14-year-old boy, was gunned down by alleged shooter Nathaniel Berhow on Thursday morning at Santa Clarita’s Saugus High School.
Police previously said the female victim was a 16-year-old.
The coroner said officials were “still working on confirming” the identity of the 14-year-old boy, but Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said the victim was a family member of a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department employee.
“The 14-year-old boy is the nephew of one of my employees,” Villanueva told CNN.
Surveillance footage captured the suspect, who also attended the school, walking onto the campus’ quad, pulling a .45-caliber semi-automatic pistol from his backpack and shooting five fellow students before turning the gun on himself, police officials said.
The shooter survived a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head and remained in critical condition Friday.
A 15-year-old girl who was shot in the hip and a 14-year-old girl shot in her shoulder and lower abdomen remained hospitalized, but were both expected to make a full recovery.
A 14-year-old boy who was shot and injured had been treated and released from a local hospital.
Meanwhile, a motive for the horrific school shooting remained unclear Friday.
“There’s nothing really that stands out [with the suspect]. He wasn’t a loner. Wasn’t socially awkward. Was involved in student activities. Student athlete,” Villanueva told CNN. “This is kind of out of the blue, shocking pretty much everyone who knew him.”
Villanueva noted that the shooting rampage was carried out in a mere 16 seconds.
“The suspect had knowledge and practical use of the weapon,” the sheriff told the news outlet.
The shooter’s late father had been a hunter and owned firearms, said Villanueva, who added that other firearms were found in the suspect’s home.
Mark Berhow, the alleged shooter’s father, was an “avid sportsman” who “loved big game hunting and fishing of all kinds,” according to an obituary for him.
A former childhood friend of the suspect, 20-year-old Ryan McCracken, told KTLA that Mark Berhow “used to make bullets.”
The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office previously told The Post that Mark Berhow died in December 2017 from a heart attack, but a “history of chronic alcoholism” contributed to his death.
