PICTURED: Hero Mother, 25, Who Died Shielding Her Two-Month-Old Son From Walmart Shooting Rampage In El Paso

Hero mom, 25, died shielding her two-month-old son from Walmart shooting rampage in El
A hero mother killed while shielding her two-month-old son from gunfire has been identified as one of the 20 victims of Saturday's shooting at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas. 

Jordan Anchondo, 25, was shopping for back-to-school supplies when a gunman stormed into the store and opened fire with an AK-47 rifle on Saturday afternoon, her heartbroken sister has revealed.   

Leta Jamrowski said her sister fell on top of the infant as she was shot. Anchondo was killed and the boy is being treated in hospital. 


'From the baby's injuries, they said that more than likely my sister was trying to shield him,' Jamrowski, 19, told The Sun.

'So when she got shot she was holding him and she fell on him, so that's why he broke some of his bones.

'He pretty much lived because she gave her life.'

Jamrowski said she fears her brother-in-law Andre Anchondo, who is Hispanic, was also among the dead because she hasn't heard from him since the attack. 
According to their Facebook profiles, Andre and Jordan live in El Paso and had just celebrated their first wedding anniversary last week. 
In addition to their two-month-old son, the couple also share two daughters.  
Patrick Crusius, 21, is believed to be the man who opened fire on the Walmart at the Cielo Vista Mall, a popular shopping destination for people both sides of the US-Mexico border, on Saturday afternoon. 
Less than 20 minutes before the shooting, Crusius allegedly uploaded a twisted and seething anti-immigrant manifesto to an online forum outlining his sickening motives and revealing that he intended to target Hispanics.  
At least 20 people were killed and 26 more were injured before Crusius was arrested.   
Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador confirmed that three Mexican nationals were killed and six others were injured, including Mario de Alba Montes, 45, Olivia Mariscal Rodriguez, 44, and 10-year-old Erika de Alba Mariscal. 
Surveillance video shows a man believed to be Crusius walking in through the front entrance of the Cielo Vista Mall Walmart with an AK47-styled assault rifle.
The gunman, wearing what appears to be ear defenders and cargo pants, first opened fire in the parking lot outside the store, shooting and killing 'locals that were fundraising outside the Walmart selling water. Children and adults.'
He then walked through the front door in a calm and confident state, as if he was 'on a mission', a witness said.
The twenty-minute massacre that followed would go on to become the eighth deadliest in US history.
