According to CEO Magazine, the Salazar family was having a great time eating ice cream when the shoot out started. During the shooting incident, Keyla walked a relative to escape the scene. The said relative uses a cane to walk. Late Monday, she was identified by Santa Clara Country Coroner’s Office as the third victim of Santino William,19 years old, shooter. Keyla would have turned 14 on August 4 and was about to start ninth grade according to his uncle, Pimentel Vargas.

This brave girl’s story won the hearts of the people. People in social media platforms expressed their sympathy to the family and other victims of the incident.  Fortunately, to financially help Keyla’s family, a car dealership in Gilroy launched a GoFundMe page organized by Bob Mann. He wrote

“Together we can help with this heartbreaking loss”

The page has $55,971 pledges, exceeding the targeted amount of $50,000. The pledges will be directly deposited to Keyla’s parents’ account.
