NFL player, SDSU alum says cousin died in San Bernardino shooting
SAN DIEGO — SDSU alum and NFL Giants Safety Nat Berhe announced Thursday his cousin was one of the victims killed in the mass shooting that claimed 14 lives at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino.
Around 10 a.m., Berhe announced via Twitter he received word one of his cousins — 60-year-old Isaac Amanios of Fontana — had died.
“Just got word that one of my cousins was among the 14 killed yesterday,” Berhe wrote. “I’m so sick right now.”
Berhe — who grew up in San Bernardino — also posted a map to his twitter account yesterday as the attack was unfolding showing the close proximity of his parents’ office building to the IRC.
“The true terror is that this keeps happening,” he wrote. “I still can’t believe it. Take a moment to think of the families hurting right now.”
Berhe also thanked supporters for their well-wishes for his family and called first responders “true heroes.”
