Following the May 6th mass shooting at a Texas mall, Kyler Murray took to Twitter after a terrible person took eight lives at a popular outlet mall in Allen.
Murray, who attended high school in Allen, Texas, said “This is sickening,” Murray said. “Prayers to the mass shooting victims in Allen, Texas. If there is any way I can help those affected by this tragedy please let me know. When is this shit gonna stop?”
The Arizona Cardinals quarterback would then put his money where his mouth was after finding out that a young child had lost all members of his family on this tragic day.
Cindy and Kyu Cho, alongside their 3-year-old son James, were killed. The couple’s 6-year-old son, William was also injured, but survived. He had just celebrated his birthday, according to a GoFundMe set up in the family’s honor.
