Motorcycle clubs stand up against violence, raise money for family

Delilah Hernandez was tragically killed on Thanksgiving. On Sunday, several motorcycle groups hit the streets to show support and raise money for the family.

San Antonio police are still looking for the gunman who took the life of a 10-year-old girl.

Delilah Hernandez was tragically killed on Thanksgiving. On Sunday, several motorcycle groups hit the streets to show support and raise money for the family.

"This shows how much our motorcycle community is close-family to support a tragic event," said Josh Boggs, president of the San Antonio chapter of Guardians of the Children.

The little girl was killed when someone opened fire on her home in the 100 block of Harwood. Police believe it is gang-related and that her 19-year-old brother was the target.

"We are here to stand against any kind of violence," Boggs said. "Especially with our children, and really any unnecessary violence as well, and that they know we are united as one. We don't want that in our city."

Last Chance Ministries Pastor Jimmy Robles said it is time to take a stand.

"We stand in the gap," he said. "We stand against the violence and those that are shooting. We will not tolerate it. We will not sit down and do nothing."

The riders made donations for funeral expenses and then rode to the family's house. Boggs said that the family is not alone.

"We pray for God's loving patience and calmness of going through the tragic time, and know that you are not doing this alone and you got family as well," Boggs said.

Funeral services for Delilah are still being worked out. The motorcycle clubs were able to raise close to $6,000.

Anyone with information about the attack is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 210-224-STOP.
