Cardinals QB Kyler Murray donates $15,000 to 6-year-old whose family died in Allen shooting

Arizona Cardinals tight end Kyler Murray, who played high school football in Allen, Texas, has donated $15,000 to support a 6-year-old boy whose family was killed in Saturday’s shooting, according to an online fundraiser.

William Cho’s parents, Cindy and Kyu Cho, and his 3-year-old brother, James, were of the eight victims who died in the Allen Premium Outlets massacre.

Murray has not publicly commented on the donation, but it is listed among the first donors on a GoFundMe page that has raised more than $1.7 million to support William, who has been released from intensive care.

“We are deeply grateful and sincerely appreciate this outpouring of love and prayers from across the country,” the fundraiser said. “William is recovering well. Both Kyu and Cindy’s families will use these funds to help William continue his parents’ legacy.”

The other victims killed in the shooting included security guard Christian LaCour, engineer Aishwarya Thatikonda, Elio Cumana-Rivas, 32, and sisters Daniela and Sofia Mendoza, who were both in elementary school.

AUTHORITIES identified the suspect as Mauricio Garcia, 33, and said he was killed by a nearby police officer.

After the shooting, Murray tweeted“This is bad.”

“Prayers to the victims of the mass shooting in Allen, Texas,” Murray, 25, wrote on Saturday. “If I can help those affected by this tragedy, please let me know. When will this stop?”

Murray went 42-0 as the starting quarterback at Allen High School and won three state championships. He played college football at Texas A&M and Oklahoma, winning the Heisman Trophy while playing for the latter in 2018. He was selected first overall by the Cardinals in the 2019 NFL Draft.
