Authorities in Dallas, Tex. have charged former teacher Erbie Bowser (seen left in an earlier mugshot) with the shooting deaths of his estranged wife, Zina Bowser, and her daughter. The killings on Wednesday ended a night that saw two others shot dead, and four wounded, a local CBS affiliate reports.
Police say Bowser began his attacks at the home of Toya Smith, who he was believed to be in a dating relationship with. Bowser shot and killed Smith and her 17-year-old daughter, and wounded two boys. He is expected to be charged in these killings, as well.
Bowser is suspected of then traveling to the house Zina was at, tossing an explosive device into the home before opening fire. Police were alerted to the crimes by the mother of a victim in the first attack. They took Bowser in to custody at he scene of Zina's death.
In addition to being a teacher, Bowser is a former Dallas Mavericks ManiAACS dancer. The dance troupe is made up of bigger men, and has supported the team for 11 seasons. While part of the troupe, Bowser performed under the name E-Luv.
