(AP) -

One of the two men fatally shot at an unauthorized party at a hip-hop dance studio in Fort Worth had graduated last month from high school.

Jordan Larkin, 18, graduated in May from North Crowley High School in Fort Worth. 

Rex Russell, whose wife, Jeanene Young Russell, was one of Larkin's high school teachers, tells the newspaper that the teen was a "great kid."

Rex Russell says Larkin spent a lot of time with him and his wife, including spending last Christmas with them.

He says Larkin came from a "pretty rough background" but "had his life going in the right direction."

He says the teen had hoped to join the military.
