Uvalde school shooting: Girl killed trying to call suspected gunman Salvador Ramos at Robb Elementary School, father says

UVALDE, Texas (KTRK) — In a deeply emotional interview, a man said his daughter was shot dead while trying to call 911 during a massacre at her elementary school in Uvalde on Tuesday.

Angel Garza said his daughter Amerie Jo Garza was shot and killed by the suspected gunman, 18-year-old Salvador Ramos.

“How do you look at that girl and shoot her?” asked Garza during an interview with Anderson Cooper.

Ramos opened fire on Robb Elementary School, killing at least 19 children and two teachers and injuring several others.

The suspect, who was a student at Uvalde High School, is dead, authorities said.

Now Garza just wants to know what his little girl did to become a victim of mass murder.

“She was the cutest little girl who never did anything wrong. She listened to her mom and dad, she always brushed her teeth, she was creative, she made things for us, she never got into trouble at school,” he said.

Garza is a first responder who learned his daughter died when he arrived at the scene.

Amerie had just celebrated her 10th birthday two weeks before her death.
