Last remaining patient from El Paso Walmart mass shooting dies

Youth soccer coach Guillermo "Memo" Garcia spent almost nine months hospitalized at Del Sol Medical Centre in El Paso after a shooter opened fire at a local Walmart in August.

His wife, who was also shot, said she "lost a warrior but gained an angel".

"His courage, his strength and his story have touched many lives, including those of our caregivers, who tirelessly fought with him and for him every step of the way", Shimp added. He was being treated at the medical center in El Paso.

Guillermo "Memo" Garcia coached a local football team and was shot while selling lemonade with his wife in order to fundraise for the team's children.

Garcia was a youth soccer coach who was on a fundraising event with his team outside the store on the morning of August 3, 2019, when a man opened fire on shoppers with an AK-47 rifle in a massacre prosecutors have branded an anti-Hispanic hate crime. "We are grieving with his family and with our community".

Garcia had remained hospitalized since the shooting, undergoing several surgeries and spending nearly nine months in intensive care before he died on Saturday night. Their two children suffered less severe injuries when they were trampled by people fleeing the shooter.

It tells the hospital management David Shrimp in a news release, according to news agency Reuters.

One week after the shooting, Jessica Garcia rose from her wheelchair to deliver an emotional speech from across from the courthouse where the suspected attacker was being kept, and decrying the racism that apparently motivated the attack.

Crusius is in jail awaiting trial. Obviously, it does, ' she said at the time.

The youth soccer coach was the last remaining patient from the mass shooting that also injured more than 20 people. Two of the affected persons died later in the hospital.

NBC News reported that prosecutors are eyeing death penalty for Cruisius, while federal officials are looking for capital murder and hate crime charges.

The Aug. 3 shooting is considered the largest terrorist attack committed against the Latinx community in modern history.
