Steven Romero was only six years old. He was one of the victims of the Gilroy Garlic Festival in Northern California shooting.
“My son had his whole life to live, and he was only 6. That’s all I can say,” his father Alberto Romero said.
“There’s nothing I really can do besides try to be with him until I can put him in his resting spot, wherever that is.”
Alberto Romero was home with his daughter when he got a call stating that his son had been killed, while his mother and grandmother had been shot. Both women survived their injuries.
Three people were killed, while 15 were injured. A 13-year-old girl was one of the victims.
Right now police are looking for a second person, but they were able to shoot and kill a suspect that was in possession of an assault-type rifle.
Alberto describes his son as someone who was “always happy and always wanting to have fun.”
