Families mourn, bury those killed in El Paso mass shooting

Mourners gathered across the Borderland Saturday to remember the lives of a high school student beloved by friends, and a mother and father who shielded their infant from gunfire.

The funerals were among several being held for people who died in the mass shooting last weekend in El Paso. Investigators said a gunman opened fire at an eastside Walmart store on Aug. 3, targeting Mexicans and killing 22 people.

A requiem Mass was offered in El Paso for 15-year-old Javier Amir Rodriguez, a high school sophomore and avid soccer player who was at the Walmart with his uncle when he was killed.

Burial was also held for Jordan Anchondo, who died shielding her infant son from gunfire. Her 2-month-old son was treated for broken bones, but was orphaned after Jordan and her husband, Andre, were killed.
