Ten-year-old Jacklyn Cazares’ father, one of 19 victims of the deadly attack in a Texas elementary school, said Wednesday that his daughter “would do anything for anyone.”
“It hit a lot of people – it was like a small fire,” Jacinto Cazares told Reuters.
Tuesday’s massacre in Texas was the worst armed assault on a school since December 2012, when a gunman killed 26 people, including 20 children, at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, according to Reuters.
The father of one of those 19 victims of the Uvalde massacre in Texas is a member of a united community of family and friends.
Uvalde, a remote town in the Texas Hill region about 80 miles (130 km) west of San Antonio, has about 16,000 people, nearly 80 percent of them Hispanic or Latino, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Like Newtown, it is a united community of strong family and friends.
GoFundMe pages were created for the community and some families to raise funds to pay for funerals.
An 18-year-old man who shot dead 19 children from a Texas school has announced the crimes on Facebook, according to an American official quoted by the BBC.
According to Governor Abbott, the gunman posted three messages on Facebook before firing.
In the first message, published about 30 minutes before the school attack, he wrote: “I’m going to shoot my grandmother.”
