SUTHERLAND SPRINGS, Texas – A grandmother is still in shock after losing two of her grandchildren and her daughter-in-law, who were all victims of the Sutherland Springs shooting on Sunday.
Sandy Ward lost her granddaughter, Emily, 7, Sunday night.
"They came down and told us that they were still working on Emily," Ward said. "But it didn't look like she was going to make it and everybody broke down and I said, ‘Keep praying. Keep praying.’ And then she ended up passing away."
Ward’s son, Chris Ward, was not at church during the shooting, but his wife, Joann, had taken their children: Emily, Brooke, Rianna and Ryland.
In the moments after the shooting, first responders found Rianna, who survived.
Ryland, 5, had been shot five times and was transported to the hospital. Emily was also shot and transported to University Hospital, where she later died.
But family could not find Joann and Brooke.
