Mother Reportedly Died Shielding Her Baby in El Paso Shooting
Jordan Anchondo, 25, was back-to-school shopping with her infant son at Walmart when a gunman walked in an opened fire.
A young mother gave her life for her son, reportedly shielding the 2-month-old from gunfire in the El Paso shooting Saturday.
Jordan Anchondo, 25, was back-to-school shopping at Walmart when a gunman walked in an opened fire, her 19-year-old sister Leta Jamrowski told the Associated Press. Anchondo was shot and killed, and her young boy sustained several broken bones after she fell on top of him.
“From the baby’s injuries, they said that more than likely my sister was trying to shield him,” Jamrowski told the AP. “So when she got shot she was holding him and she fell on him, so that’s why he broke some of his bones. So he pretty much lived because she gave her life.”
The baby is being treated for his injuries, and Jamrowski said she is also waiting to learn the fate of her brother-in-law, Andre Anchondo.
Jordan Anchondo, who was the mother of three children, was one of the 20 people killed in the attack. More than two dozen were injured.
