6-year-old boy orphaned after losing parents and brother in Texas mall shooting

William lost his mother, father, and little brother in the shooting.

A boy has been orphaned after both his parents and brother were killed in a shooting at a Texas shopping centre on May 6th.

William, who is only 6 years old, was visiting the shopping centre with his parents Kyu Song Cho and Cindy Cho, and brother James Cho.

The family was visiting the Allen outlet mall in North Texas when Mauricio Garcia started shooting members of the public. His parents and their three-old-son James were all killed in the shooting.

William, who celebrated his 6th birthday days before the shooting, was admitted to ICU but luckily pulled through.

Their family is now in "deep mourning" following the unbearable loss.

William's entire life has changed following the shooting. The 6-year-old lost the three most important people in his life on May 6th.

A friend of the family wrote on GoFundMe, "On Saturday, May 6th, Cindy, Kyu, William, and James Cho visited the Allen outlet mall together in North Texas. William just celebrated his 6th birthday 4 days prior and James is 3."

Cindy, Kyu, and three-year-old James were among the eight victims.


Funds raised will help support William and his loved ones during this harrowing time.
