5-Year-Old Girl Whose Parents Died In El Paso Shooting Feared She’d Be Shot Next
While speaking with CNN, the grandparents of a 5-year-old girl, whose parents, Jordan Anchando and Andre Anchondo, passed in the recent El Paso mass shooting, shared the words of their granddaughter, who feared she’d be shot next by the suspect.
Upon learning of the tragic news regarding her mother, Skylin Jamrowski then asked her grandparents and aunt, “Is my dad dead?,” to which they confirmed, yes. Her stepfather, the man she referred to as a dad, had passed in the massacre that killed 22 and injured two additional dozen, leaving her to ask “Is he going to come and shoot me?”
In addition to Skylin, the late parents left behind their middle child, Victoria and youngest, Paul Gilbert, who is 2-months-old and was in his mother’s arms when she fell to the ground, shot. He was left injured.
Additionally, Jordan’s mother, Misti Jamrowski, states, “The shooter had aimed at Jordan. And Andre jumped in front of Jordan. And the shooter shot Andre, and the bullets went through Andre and hit Jordan.”
Adding, Paul Jamrowski shares, “The sad thing is, is that even with all of us … it’s Mom and Dad. We can’t replace Mom and Dad. It’s just something you can’t replace.”
