Victims of Allen Mall shooting in Texas remembered

A permanent memorial will be unveiled today so that the community never forgets the eight people who died in a mall shooting in Allen near Dallas, Texas one year ago today, the Dallas News reported.

May 6, 2024 marks the one-year anniversary of the shooting that claimed a Korean American family of 3, Cindy Cho. James Cho. Kyu Cho, along with Indian American Aishwarya Thatikonda,  Elio Cumana-Rivas. Christian LaCour. Daniela Mendoza and Sofia Mendoza.

Pastor Danielle Buwon Kim of Ka:ll Community Dinner Church led a moment of silence for the victims during a memorial on Sunday.

Suneetha Pinnamaneni has undergone nine surgeries after being hit by bullets in the left forearm. Doctors treated her as a level one trauma victim and worked immediately to stop the uncontrollable bleeding that could have taken her life.

“I was so scared when the incident happened,” she said in a video produced by Medical City Plano, but later on I was realizing how lucky I was to survive.”

Today she gives back by volunteering to talk to trauma patients at the hospital to give them hope.

“I feel much better. I’m very happy to recover this much. Nobody expected to see me improve this much. I’m really happy to be in this place.”
