Ashly Yhuky Tianson, 19, was shot and killed on Friday while shielding his girlfriend from three people attempting to steal his car.
Last Friday around 9pm, San Mateo Police were dispatched to the San Mateo Adult School in California, on a report of a shooting. The press release from the San Mateo Police Department revealed that Tianson was on the driver’s side and his girlfriend was in the passenger when they were approached by the three people outside the school. He was shot twice. First in the abdomen, and second on the side of his neck. Police provided first aid and was rushed to the hospital where he unfortunately died of from his wounds.
Tianson’s family have made a GoFundMe to help cover the costs of his funeral. “Yhuky’s natural reaction was to cover his girlfriend in hopes of using his body to protect her from any harm.” He has been described by family and friends as being kind, selfless, and generous of those around him.
Police have arrested two out of the three suspects on Tuesday. The alleged shooters, both 16, are being charged with murder, attempted murder, and homicide.
