Through this space, Serna was able to locate the emergency exit and the group out of the building.

Including six young girls, a football team, which had collected in front of the Store for donations for your Team. Serna led the people Waiting in the building of the Sam’s Club, a supermarket around the corner, and instructed them to wait there for the police.

With her pink hat, the assistant teacher waved to almost 40 people in a storage room and saved your life. “You see it in movies, but when you experience it then, if you see a Person kill, then the blood is everywhere,” says Gonzalez of the “CNN”.
A Walmart spokesman confirmed shortly after the fact that it was Serna, in fact, one of your employees and that you appreciate his heroic deed.
