Uvalde Survivor, Victims' Parents to Testify at U.S. House Panel

This comes following a recent spate of mass shootings

Parents of victims killed in recent mass shootings in New York state and Texas, as well as a fourth grader who survived last week's attack, will speak before a congressional panel next week as U.S. lawmakers consider new measures to curb gun violence.

The mother of one of the 10 people killed at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, will join the parents of one of the 19 children gunned down at a Uvalde, Texas, elementary school at the House of Representatives Oversight and Reform Committee's hearing on June 8, the panel said in a statement on Friday. Miah Cerrillo, a fourth-grader at the school, will also appear.

The public hearing comes after the United States, which has a higher rate of gun deaths than any other wealthy nation, has seen a spate of especially horrific mass killings in recent weeks, including the largest mass school shooting in nearly 10 years.
