“The guy shot the cop,” he said. “And the cops started shooting.”
During the ordeal, the student said that his teachers Irma García and Eva Mireles, who died in the shooting, “went past my classmates to help, to save them.”
After Ramos was killed by a Border Patrol officer, the student said he “opened the curtain” over the table “and I just put my hand out.”
