School officials suspended her after receiving an anonymous tip about a past police report involving DelTondo and an underage boy who did not attend Pennsylvania Cyber, the school's CEO Brian Hayden told Fox News. Around 10:30 p.m. Sunday night, police were called to the scene on Buchanan street, where DelTondo had been shot just after getting out of her vehicle.
"I counted six shots that I heard", neighbour Fred Poore told local media.
The death has stunned neighbors in the quiet neighborhood and police are hunting for clues to the identity of the killer.
A teacher has been shot dead on Sunday a matter of months after she was suspended from her post for allegedly being caught by the police in a compromising position in a auto with a 17-year-old boy.
A police incident report revealed officers discovered the teacher with the boy at approximately 2 a.m.in a parked auto near Aliquippa Hospital, according to The Beaver Countian.
The incident, which took place early 2016, involved an officer finding Deltondo and the juvenile parked near Aliquippa Hospital property, noting that "the windows were steamed over and the engine was not running".
Inside was DelTondo and the teen.
The report said she was busted with the teenager at 2am.
The incident report named the teen and it was confirmed that he was not registered at the charter school. Cops later found text messages and Snapchat messages which revealed the pair had a 'relationship'. DelTondo told police that the teen was upset and they were friends who were just talking.

In documents, prosecutors allege that they found a large cache of child pornography on a server that was maintained by Schulte. It is noted that despite the long months of investigation, prosecutors have been unable to charge him.
She begged police not to press charges because: "She didn't want her fiancé to know that she was here parked because he would get mad".
"The reason this report was not filed in February 2016 with the Aliquippa School District, Children and Youth Services and a mandated report to the Department of Education was because it was an attempted cover up", the second email reads.
The school announced they were suspending her the following month. A meeting between the Aliquippa Police, state police, and district attorney is expected on Tuesday (May 15) morning, and a statement is expected at that time.
Brian Hayden, chief executive officer of the Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School, said he was "saddened" by the death.
Reportedly, her name was sometimes misspelled as "Rachel" in certain media publications concerning the story. We express our sympathy to her family, friends, and coworkers.
DelTondo had been teaching at Pennsylvania Cyber for almost 10 years.
But the wedding was called off unexpectedly - a few months after DelTondo was caught with the teen, but before the report was made public.
Lozier won't say if investigators have a suspect or if they believe the shooting is related to the leaked information. "I really don't... handsome lady, friendly, knew everybody, talked to everybody". I really don't, ' said Dan Casper, a neighbor, who described the 32-year-old as a 'beautiful lady, friendly, knew everybody, talked to everybody'.
Shortly over a year later, 32-year-old Rachael DelTondo died after suffering multiple gunshot wounds in front of her mother's home.
