The Marine Corps has identified the three Marines killed in an apparent double murder-suicide on Thursday at the Officer Candidate School at Quantico Marine Corps Base, according to a Sunday report.

Sgt. Eusebio Lopez, 25, allegedly killed Lance Cpl. Sara Castromata, 19 and Cpl. Jacob Wooley, 23, in Taylor Hall, a barracks where enlisted Marines attached to OCS are billeted.

Lopez was an instructor specializing in machine gun training and had been in the Marines since 2006, according to The Associated Press. Castromata was a clerk and had been in the Marines since late 2011 and Wooley was a radio operator and joined the Marines in 2010.

The Marines worked together but officials did not elaborate on their relationship.
