Killing in Texas: “He said ‘good night’ and shot him in the head”, this moving testimony before Congress


The American Congress is currently debating a limited regulation of firearms.

The mass shooting at a school in Uvalde, Texas shocked the world. This Wednesday, June 8, Miah Cerrillo, 11, told the US Congress how she went into “survival mode” when Salvador Ramos, the 18-year-old shooter, started targeting his classmates.

This young survivor explains again that she covered herself with the blood of her friend to escape the author of the shooting which caused the death of 19 schoolchildren and two teachers in a school in Uvalde.

“Schools are no longer safe

“I don’t want this to happen again,” she said in her video released to Congress. The shooter “said ‘Good night’ to my teacher and he shot her in the head. Then he shot some of my classmates and the blackboard”, the 11-year-old girl testified during a hearing on Capitol Hill on the “epidemic of gun violence”. “When I got close to the backpacks he shot my friend who was right next to me and I thought he was going to come back into the room.”

“So I took some blood and smeared it all over myself…I was quiet, then I grabbed my teacher’s phone and called (the emergency number) 911.” Miah Cerrillo’s father, Miguel, present at the audition, assured that his daughter no longer felt safe at school and was “no longer the same little girl with whom [il] used to play”. “Schools are no longer safe, something really has to change,” he said, in tears.

Bodies of children “pulverized, decapitated, shredded”

During this debate, the US Congress also heard testimony from Roy Guerrero, a pediatrician from Uvalde. He describes the bodies of children “pulverized, decapitated, torn by bullets”. “What I can’t understand is if our politicians let us down out of stubbornness, passivity or both,” he said. “As a society, we have failed our children.”

Pediatrician Roy Guerrero describes the injuries he saw at the hospital:
“I saw 2 children whose bodies had been pulverized by the bullets (from the AR-15 semi-automatic rifle), decapitated, their flesh torn. The only clue to their identity, a cartoon t-shirt covered in blood” pic.twitter.com/TVbtwNHQLT
