An teenage student shot herself in front of her parents after being subjected to “relentless bullying” for years.
Brandy Vela killed herself with a shotgun in her bedroom as her family pleaded with her to drop the weapon, after she sent a text to her sister that read: “I love you so much just remember that please and I’m so sorry for everything.”
As soon as she received the message, Jacqueline, Brandy’s 22-year-old sister, rushed to the family home in Texas and alerted her parents and grandparents.
“I was the first one here,” she told Click2Houston.
“I heard someone crying so I ran upstairs and I looked in her room and she’s against the wall and she has a gun pointed at her chest and she’s just crying and crying and I’m like, ‘Brandy please don’t, Brandy no’.”
Brandy’s parents and grandparents also begged the teen to put down the weapon unsuccessfully.
