Phommathep Family Victims

"Yesterday was a tragic day for many here in Northern California. As many might have heard a gunman took many innocent lives, and many sustained life threatening injuries at the mass shooting at Rancho Tehama Elementary School." The Phommathep family had three wounded out four in their truck. A 10yr son with two gunshot wound to the calf, a 7yr old son with a gunshot wound to his foot, and 2yr old with scratches from glass fragmemts. And the wife had five gunshot wound which are life threatening; four to the side of the left shoulder nearly missing the heart and one to the abdomen which cut through three parts of the intestine. She was in ICU and went to a 4hr surgery.

On a normal morning Johnny's wife would text him, "Dropping the kids off". When he asked what would she like for him to pick up on his way home and after 30mins of no response he knew something bad had happened. When he got a phone call from the sheriffs/authorities letting him know his wife and sons have been shot is a phone call nobody needs to hear. On Nov 14, 2017 his wife Tiffany Phommathep (driver), son Johnny Phommathep 10yr old, Jake Phommathep 7yr old, and Nikos 2yr old were on their way to Rancho Tehama Elementary School. As a gunman pulled along side their truck and started firing from a high rifle. Jake was in the rear back passenger seat of the truck and was struck on his foot. Johnny was hit twice on his calf in front of passenger. Nikos got cuts from glass fragments. His beautiful wife Tiffany was shielding Johnny in the front passenger seat and was struct five round and leaving a bullet inside of her intestine and the upper shoulder nearly hitting the heart. After the gunmen drove away his wife was bleeding severely she screamed for helped along with his son Johnny and no one stopped to help. She then drove 1 mile to our local gas station and screamed again and multiple people stared and did not bother to help. She then made the decision to go into town and drove 5 miles down a county road until she flagged shown a Sheriff vehicle. His family appreciated everything this officer did for my wife and kids. Johnny being a Combat Vet he was trained to help people with injuries it's very disheartening to hear so many turn away from a dying female and multiple kids who have been shot. Financially Johnny's the only sole provider for a family of six. The money they'll receive will go toward expenses that are needed and household needs and bills while Johnny is off work to care for his family. Oh behalf of our family we thank you for any donation!
