On Tuesday, tragedy struck the state of Texas as nineteen children and two teachers were shot and killed at Robb Elementary School. 18-year-old Salvador Ramos carried out the shooting before being shot and killed by law enforcement officers. Ramos allegedly shot his grandmother before carrying a rifle and handgun in to the school and opening fire on students and teachers.
Yesterday, a student’s aunt retold the story of the horrific scene at the elementary school.
The student, 11-year-old Miah Cerrillo, had to cover herself in blood to evade detection by Ramos. She initially seemed to be fine, but had a panic after hours after the shooting on Tuesday night. She went to the hospital but was discharged yesterday. Her Aunt spoke to Click 2 Houston and described what her niece witnessed at Robb Elementary School.

“Miah Cerrillo, 11, survived the shooting but watched her friends and teacher being killed, according to her aunt, Blanca Rivera, who spoke with Click 2 Houston.
Cerrillo smeared blood on her face and went into survival mode after seeing her classmates shot to death, according to the report.
“My sister-in-law said is that [Miah] saw her friend full of blood, and she got blood and put it on herself,” Rivera said. “My brother said she had bullet fragments in her back.”
The 11-year-old had seemed to be okay until Tuesday night when she got home, and then had a panic attack.
“Around midnight, my sister-in-law called me and she was just crying like, ‘I think it just hit Miah. I think everything came to reality. We’re home, and she’s just crying and having a panic attack,” Rivera said.
Miguel Cerrillo, the 11-year-old’s father, told Fox News Digital that she is still “freaking out” about what happened on Tuesday.”
