Justin Timberlake Pays Hospital Visits to Texas High School Shooting Victims
Justin Timberlake, the Samaritan, made hospital visits to the survivors of a school shooting that took place in Sante Fe, Texas last week. On Friday morning (May 25), the Man of the Woods crooner met 16-year-old Sarah Salazar, who was being treated for bullet wounds from the neck down to her thigh. The teen told ABC she tried hiding in a closet as the shooter opened fire into her class but to no avail — the May 18 incident left 10 people dead and 13 injured.
The teenager's mother, Sonia Lopez-Puentes, photographed and shared the endearing moment to her Facebook page, writing, "Justin Timberlake visited Sarah Salazar this morning and brought her a gift."
According to the Daily Mail, Timberlake, who was in the Texas area for his tour stop at the Houston Toyota Center Friday night, reportedly wore a Sante Fe Strong shirt and dedicated a live performance of "Until the End of Time" to the shooting victims just nights before. Salazar recently underwent jaw surgery and is currently awaiting a shoulder replacement according to the GoFundMe page created to cover her medical expenses.
The suspected gunman, 17-year-old Dimitrios Pagourtzis, who allegedly conspired the slaughter with an AR-15-style rifle, shotgun, and pistol, is being held without bond on charges of capital murder, CNN reported.
