CSUEU | Donation for Stephen Luciano Romero
Near the end of a nationally famous three-day festival that celebrates garlic and all who love it, a gunman armed with an assault rifle shot and killed 6-year-old Stephen Romero, of San Jose. The gunman also shot Stephen’s mother, Barbara, who remains hospitalized in critical condition. The toll from the latest mass shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival on July 28: 3 dead; 12 injured.
Stephen’s father, Alberto Romero, is a residential apprentice and union member of the IBEW Local 332. Stephen’s mother is a Santa Clara County worker and member of SEIU Local 521.
To help the Romero family in the aftermath of a horror no family should endure, two GoFundMe fundraisers have been established.
The two others killed were Keyla Salazar, 13, of San Jose and Trevor Irby, 25, a recent college graduate living in Santa Cruz.
