Solidarity action

The franchise owned by billionaire Jerry Jones joined the mourning that overwhelms the people of the town of Uvalde.

“The entire Dallas Cowboys organization mourns with the Uvalde community and all those affected by today’s tragic event. As we mourn the loss of an innocent life, our hearts and prayers go out to the families of the victims, their loved ones, the faculty and staff of Robb Elementary,” states the document shared on social media.

For their part, Texans officials acknowledged being saddened by the manner in which an individual took the lives of innocent children.

“We are heartbroken by the tragic events this afternoon in Uvalde as we mourn with our Texas neighbors. To the victims, their families and the entire Uvalde community, we hold you close to our hearts today and in the weeks to come,” the missive stated.

Sad work of identification

Around midnight on Tuesday, the authorities revealed the identity of the first victim of the attack provoked by Salvador Romas, an 18 year old teenager whose motives that led him to shoot large caliber weapons are still unknown.

It was learned that teacher Eva Mireles, 43 years old, is one of the two adults who lost their lives inside a classroom at Robb Elementary School in Texas.
