EL PASO, TX (AP) – A relative says a 25-year-old woman who was shot while apparently shielding her 2-month-old son was among the 20 people killed when a gunman opened fire in a crowded El Paso shopping area.

Leta Jamrowski of El Paso learned Saturday afternoon that her older sister Jordan Anchondo had been shot to death at Walmart while shopping for back-to-school supplies earlier in the day.

Jamrowski told the AP that her infant nephew suffered broken bones as a result of his mother falling to the ground.
