Rojelio’s family was among those who waited into the night of May 24 to find out what happened to him.
Federico Torres, Federico’s father, said that they sent them to the hospital, the civic centre, the hospital and back again. Nothing, not even in San Antonio. “They give us nothing, just a photograph, and we can wait to see if everything is okay.”
After receiving the terrible news, Rojelio spoke to ABC News and said that her mother was proud of her son.
Precious, Rojelio’s aunt posted on KSAT TV, “Our entire familia waited almost twelve hours from the shooting to learn that Rojelio Torres was my nephew 10 years old, died in this tragedy.” We are heartbroken and distraught. Rojer was an intelligent, hardworking, and kind person. Rojer will be greatly missed and not forgotten.”
