'He told my teacher goodnight, and then he shot her in the head' -Uvalde survivor

STORY: Miah Cerrillo, her father, and the parents of other Americans killed and wounded in recent mass shootings testified on Wednesday before a congressional panel as lawmakers work to find a compromise gun safety bill.

"He told my teacher 'goodnight' and shot her in the head," Cerrillo said in a pre-taped interview played for the committee.

"And then he shot some of my classmates and the white board," she said, adding: "He shot my friend that was next to me ... and I thought he was going to come back to the room. I got the blood and put it all on me."

The young girl said she fears such violence could happen again at school.
