The three people allegedly gunned down by a former sheriff’s detective in Austin, Texas, were his wife, teen daughter and her high school football star boyfriend, according to reports.

Alyssa Broderick and Willie Simmons III, a standout linebacker who had signed with the University of North Texas, were identified Monday by the Elgin Independent School District, KXAN reported.

The girl’s mother, Amanda Broderick, also was killed in the attack Sunday, according to 13WHAM reporter Kris Betts, who cited Austin police.

Stephen Nicholas Broderick, 41, who was reportedly arrested on Monday, resigned from the Travis County Sheriff’s Office after being charged with and jailed for allegedly molesting a 16-year-old relative last June, the Austin American-Statesman reported.

Alyssa was known as a star athlete at school.

“She was an excellent student and athlete, enrolled in our Early College High School program and played on our girls’ basketball team,” Elgin schools Superintendent Jodi Duron told KXAN about Alyssa.

Her boyfriend, a captain of the high school football team, had signed to play at the University of North Texas.

“He was an exceptional young man and leader among his peers,” Duron said, adding that the athlete was a National Honor Society member and “represented the very best of Elgin ISD.”

“The Elgin ISD community grieves the loss of these two young, promising souls,” Duron said.

Simmons committed to UNT in April and signed with the Mean Green during the early signing period in December 2020, the Denton Record-Chronicle reported.

As a junior, he was a unanimous first-team All-District 13-5A selection and waited for a scholarship offer from a program that competes on the Football Bowl Subdivision level, according to the news outlet.

“North Texas was an easy decision because of the facilities and the coaches,” Simmons said after he committed, the Denton Record-Chronicle reported. “I felt the love. There was no doubt in my mind when they gave me an offer.”
