For the six-year-old boy who lost every member of his family in the mass shooting that occurred in Allen, Texas over the weekend, more than $1 million has been raised. Reports state that on Saturday, May 6, a shooter opened fire at the outlet mall where Cindy Cho, 35, Kyu Cho, 37, and their kids William, 6, and James, 3, were present.
In the senseless assault, Cindy, Kyu, and their son James were among the eight people who perished. But William, who survived the shooting, is now having to deal with the death of his parents and brother. Before the shooter was killed by an Allen policeman who happened to be at the outlet center on an unrelated call, seven more victims were injured.
