A fourth-grader from Uvalde, Texas who survived the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School last month was among those who gave powerful eye-witness testimony Wednesday at a House hearing on gun violence.\r\n\r\n\u0022And then he shot some of my classmates.\u0022\r\n\r\nThe testimony from Miah Cerrillo—who previously revealed chilling details of how she survived the May 24 massacre that left 19 students and two teachers dead—came during the Committee on Oversight and Reform\u0026#039;s hearing entitled \u0022The Urgent Need to Address the Gun Violence Epidemic.\u0022\r\n\r\nIn her remarks, provided via previously recorded video, Cerrillo said that her teacher \u0022made eye contact\u0022 with the gunman, who was in the hallway, as she went to lock the door and told the students to hide.\r\n\r\nThe gunman entered her classroom from a door to an adjoining classroom, she explained.\r\n\r\nThen, Cerrillo said, the gunman \u0022shot my teacher and told my teacher \u0026#039;Good night\u0026#039; and shot her in the head. And then he shot some of my classmates.\u0022\r\n\r\n\u0022When I went to the backpacks, he shot my friend that was next to me,\u0022 she said. \u0022I thought he was gonna come back to the room so I grabbed the blood and I put it all over me\u0022 and \u0022stayed quiet.\u0022\r\n\r\nAfter that, she said, \u0022I got my teacher\u0026#039;s phone and called 911\u0022 and told the dispatcher \u0022that we need help.\u0022\r\n\r\nAsked if she felt safe at school, Miah shook her head no and said \u0022because I don\u0026#039;t want it to happen again.\u0022\r\n\r\nWhen then asked if she thought such an event is going to happen again, she nodded in the affirmative.\r\n\r\nWatch her testimony below:\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nMiah\u0026#039;s father, Miguel Cerrillo, spoke briefly in person at the hearing after his daughter\u0026#039;s video testimony. \u0022I could have lost my baby girl,\u0022 he said through tears, adding that \u0022she is not the same little girl that I used to play with and run with and do everything.\u0022\r\n\r\n\u0022I wish something will change,\u0022 he said, \u0022not only for our kids but for every single kid in the world because schools are not safe anymore.\u0022\r\n\r\nOther witnesses at the congressional hearing included Zeneta Everhart, whose son Zaire Goodman was shot in the neck during the May 14 mass shooting in Buffalo, New York. Felix and Kimberly Rubio, whose 10-year-old daughter Lexi was shot and killed in Uvalde, also testified, as did Dr. Roy Guerrero, a pediatrician in Uvalde.\r\n\r\n\u0022After 19 innocent children and two teachers lost their lives in Texas just 10 days after the mass shooting in my home state of New York, I\u0026#039;m turning my anger into action,\u0022 said Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.), chair of the committee, in a statement.\r\n\r\nMaloney said the hearing would \u0022examine the terrible impact of gun violence and the urgent need to rein in the weapons of war used to perpetrate these crimes\u0022 and expressed hope her colleagues would \u0022listen with an open heart as gun violence survivors and loved ones recount one of the darkest days of their lives.\u0022\r\n\r\n\u0022This hearing is ultimately about saving lives, and I hope it will galvanize my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to pass legislation to do just that,\u0022 she said.\r\n\r\nThis is an update from an earlier version of this story.
