One of the survivors of the school massacre in Uvalde, who was trapped in her classroom with the gunman, tells of the shooting that killed 21 people, including 19 children.

Khloie Torres, 10, spoke to Fox News on Wednesday and said she naturally feared for her life in those terrifying moments.

‘I was afraid… To say, ‘what would be my last words?’ I was really scared,” Torres said.

Torres was in class with the heroic teacher Irma Garcia when the shooting happened, as recess had just ended and, as the school year was coming to a close, a movie was being turned on when things took their horrific turn.

“She told us we would be shut down soon,” Torres said. “So, my friend, he got up and turned off the TV because that’s what we had to do. And just as she went out to find the key and lock the door from the outside, we heard gunshots.”

Khloie Torres, one of the survivors of the Uvalde school massacre who was trapped in her classroom with the gunman, speaks out, saying Salvador Ramos did not shoot randomly when he killed 21 people, including 19 children.

Torres said Garcia had attempted to close the door at the time, but deranged gunman Ramos forced his way in.

She said the Garcia began guarding the kids while her boyfriend and classmate Armory used a friend’s phone to call 911.

“When she did, he started saying, ‘You’re going to die!’

Garcia began begging and pleading with Ramos as she tried to defend her children, but to no avail.

“He shot my friend and my teachers. And then he said ‘good night’ and started shooting everyone.’

Torres said that Ramos walked around the classroom and shot everyone he could see before he got to her.

“He shot the girl next to me and she said, ‘I got shot!’ And I didn’t want to say anything because I didn’t want him to come up to me and shoot me. So I kept quiet. He came back and shot her again because she wouldn’t be quiet.’

Then, she says, the shooter went to the classroom connected to hers and continued firing away.

When the gunfire stopped and she heard Ramos enter the hallway, she ran into that classroom to see if anyone had survived.

“It’s hard because there were bodies everywhere!” she said.

Torres said she tried several times to contact the police, but was always told there were already officers at the school.

Ruben Torres, Khloie’s father, said he was misinformed when the tragedy was underway.

“I heard from a colleague of mine who told me it was a high-speed chase. And that’s common here, so I thought nothing of it,’ he said. “If I’d known there was an active gunman on her campus, I would’ve stopped working right away.”

For now, Torres is focused on making sure his daughter recovers from the horrible things she’s endured.

“It’s going to be a long road. This will never pass for her.’

Khloie attended Garcia’s funeral and will likely attend her classmates’ services.

However, according to mother Jamie, she no longer goes to school from that moment on and is home-schooled.

“The way everything was handled was so bad,” she said. “I need to be confident she’s safe.”

After last week’s massacre at the hands of 18-year-old gunman Salvador Ramos, dozens of stories of individual tragedies and exploits have surfaced.

Garcia, who according to multiple stories gave her life to protect the children, was one of the 21 victims. Her husband Joe died of a heart attack just two days later.
