A mother whose daughter was killed on Friday in the tragic shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas says that the alleged gunman targeted her daughter because she had rejected him multiple times.
Sadie Rodriguez, the mother of 16-year-old Shana Fisher, said that her daughter “had 4 months of problems from this boy,” The Los Angeles Times reported.
The Times says that Rodriguez made the allegations in a private Facebook message, saying that the shooter kept making advances on her daughter “and she repeatedly told him no.”
Then, after the 17-year-old shooter allegedly became more aggressive, Rodriguez indicated that her daughter stood up to his advances and embarrassed him in class.
“A week later he opens fire on everyone he didn’t like,” Rodriguez told the Times, claiming that her daughter was “the first one” targeted by the shooter.
In an article in the Houston Chronicle, Rodriguez described her daughter as a “beautiful, smart, funny and talented” girl who “loved life and her dog Kallie. She was shy and sweet,” adding that she “had a lot of love in her heart.”
