Xavier Degollado

September 14, 2002 - February 28, 2022


Xavier's Mom Wrote the Following:

My name is Emily Rivera. On the Monday afternoon of February 28th 2022, my son Xavier Alexander Degollado was shot and killed at a gas station right across from where he and I lived. Xavier was only 19 years old, he was just getting his life started. He had plans to go into welding like his dad. Me and his father, both of our families and his friends are all very heartbroken. It's been months since his life has been taken by gun violence.


We NEED Justice, Xavier DESERVES Justice. We need Xavier's story shared and told he was our one son and grandson! Xavier still had so much life to live and now is gone. We want the world to know his story and never forget his name. Too many children are losing their lives because of gun violence and not getting the acknowledgment they deserve as victims. No parent should bury their child at a young age.


Thank you very much.

The media did cover the shooting, but didn't name Xavier.
