The school said their mother, Maria Romero, was hospitalized due to injuries suffered in the incident. Her condition is unknown.

“All of us in Richfield Public Schools extend our deepest sympathies to the Ronquillo family and friends,” the school said in a statement. “Because of our close school community, this death touches everyone at our two schools and many within the district.”

School and community counselors, psychologists, and social workers were made available at the school Monday morning.

      That diversity makes us stronger. Mayor Betsy and Minneapolis City Council have targeted every bus stop or transit point as a seed bed for free welfare towers for our open borders new best friends. All single family homes shall be devalued if not confiscated, with zoning for our valued non-citizen new best welfare friends from Mexico, Africa and the Islamic Caliphate. Our elite Socialist Village leaders have contracted to import as many as possible.. It is the right thing to do to increase our voter base in the Socialist Village.

    It’s a shame how the DFL has destroyed Minnesota.
