EXCLUSIVE: Sister of Texas school shooter has rushed home to comfort grandmother
Marisabelle Ramos, 21, is the gunman’s elder sister who is presently serving in the United States Navy. She is three years older than her deceased brother Salvador, who was accountable for Tuesday’s tragedy at Robb Elementary School.
Rolando Reyes stated that his granddaughter Marisabelle is in the Navy and is now stationed in San Diego, California. Marisabelle, according to Reyes, went back to San Antonio to be with her grandma Celia after learning of the tragedy.
A GoFundMe page put up to help Celia, who was shot in the head by Salvador but survived, has only received $230 of its $30,000 goal.
Celia is being treated at a hospital in San Antonio after being wounded in the face by her grandson, Marisabelle’s 18-year-old brother Salvador, moments before he killed down 19 students and two teachers at Robb Elementary School.
Marisabelle is believed to graduate in 2020 from Crossroads Academy High School in Uvalde, Texas. She also attended Uvalde High School as a freshman and sophomore in 2017 and 2018, while residing on Diaz Street with Celia and other family members.
In the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District, the high school is located on an alternate campus.
Crossroads Academy High School, as per their Facebook page, is established around an ethic of caring for the entire student in order to serve the academic needs of at-risk students toward the attainment of a High School Diploma.
Salvador Ramos, Marisabelle’s father, expressed that he is presently separated from his daughter as she was unhappy with him for not spending enough time with the family. He also informed them that she had joined the Navy and would no longer be living at home.
He added, his daughter turned her life for good, she went to the Navy. He hoped his son had gone to alter his life too.
Authorities said Ramos had considered getting a gun and shooting up a school for some months.
According to Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steven McCraw, Ramos begged his sister to get him a pistol in September and she firmly declined.
Natalie, Celia’s daughter, has put up a GoFundMe account for her mother.
Natalie stated that what occurred on May 24 had “shaken her family to the core, particularly her mother.” They extend their sympathies to all the families who lost loved ones on that tragic day, as her kids and she also lost her little cousin Layla on her father’s side of the family, as well as her nephew on her mother’s side. When she says we’ve been struck from all sides, she speaks for her kids and herself.
She went on to say that Celia has had four major operations since entering the hospital and that she may not be able to return home for several months.
She humbly requests that you assist her mother. Bills from both home and the hospital will mount. Any contribution is highly appreciated.
Only $350 of the desired $30,000.00 has been given thus far.
In instance, the GoFundMe campaign for Joe and Irma Garcia, the Robb Elementary School teacher who died in the shooting and her husband who died of a heart attack days later, has raised more than $2.5 million, well above their $10,000 target.
Ramos massacred at least 19 innocent kids in Uvalde, Texas, before being shot dead in a confrontation with a border patrol officer.
According to police, Ramos purchased two AR-15 assault weapons for his 18th birthday, boasted about them on social media, and threatened to conduct an outrage before the horrific act.
