LAS VEGAS (FOX5) –
A five-year-old Valley girl lost her daddy on Wednesday after he was shot and eliminated at an east Las Vegas car wash.
Cops later on discovered the suspects connected to Thomas “Tommy” Romero’s death. Officers tried to stop the automobile, but it became an authorities chase and shootout near Hollingsworth Elementary School near Bruce and Fremont Streets.
Romero’s mom Theresa said the family is having a difficult time coping.
“I cannot even discuss,” Theresa stated. “My body is so numb.”
Trying to find the best words has been tough. All this family can do is comfort each other and search for a way to tell a 5-year-old lady her father isn’t getting back.
“You rely on both moms and dads,” stated Jenifer Eastman, Tommy’s former sweetheart. “You’re like, ‘I want to be with daddy, I want to be with mommy,’ you constantly have that balance. For now, it’s simply me totally, but this will definitely impact her, since both Tommy and I had relationships with our daddies.”
Romero’s household said they don’t know why he was targeted.
“He left here and 7 O’clock in the morning, it took place at 7:30,” said Lorenza, Tommy’s grandmother. “I have no idea individuals.”
Rene Nunez was apprehended and the second suspect cops wanted, Fidel Miranda, was killed during the shootout.
As Romero’s family awaits more answers from police, they are preparing his funeral and raising money through GoFundMe. A number of regional organisations are also raising loan to help Romero’s household.
