Andre and Jordan Anchondo are among those killed in the El Paso shooting. The young couple were killed while trying to protect their 2-month old baby from gunfire.
“Andre was in front of the gunman protecting Jordan as she protected the baby,” a close family member said. The parents to three children didn’t survive the ordeal which has been described as one of the worst in recent times.
Luckily, through their sacrifices the baby survived the ordeal with a few injuries. More than 17 people lost their lived in the Walmart, El Paso shooting.
The couple who celebrated one year of marriage recently had dropped off their five-year-old daughter at cheerleading camp nearby just before going to Walmart to buy school supplies.
Detectives are treating the ordeal which happened in Texas City near the Mexican border as domestic terrorism and a possible hate crime.
The shooter who has yet to be named was captured and is in custody while investigations continue.
