Funeral for Girl Killed in Garlic Festival Shooting
Mourners used colored markers to write messages on Keyla Salazar’s white casket before a funeral, Tuesday, August 6, for the middle-school teenager killed in a mass shooting at a California food festival.
A Mass in English and Spanish was held at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in San Jose just two days after Keyla would have turned 14.
Relatives, including her sobbing mother, wore T-shirts with a photo of a grinning Keyla wearing a crown of small pink paper flowers.
The family had planned to spend her birthday, Sunday, August 4, celebrating at a lake.
At the funeral, she was described as a hard-working student who loved drawing and video games. (AP)
