DALLAS (AP) — Officials say a man accused in a shooting rampage that left four people dead is a former Army staff sergeant who more recently worked as a teacher and hip-hop dancer for the Dallas Mavericks.

Police say Erbie Bowser shot and killed a mother and her 17-year-old daughter at a Dallas residence Wednesday night then traveled to nearby DeSoto and killed two others. Four youths were also wounded.

Bowser worked nearly a decade as a special education teacher in the Dallas suburb of Mesquite. A district spokeswoman says he resigned in 2010. He also was in the Dallas Mavericks ManiAAC dance troupe until 2009.

The U.S. Army media relations department says Bowser was enlisted from October 1991 to November 2000. The army will not say whether he was honorably or dishonorably discharged.
