COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Friday is the one year anniversary of the tragic Dallas shooting where 5 officers lost their life.

For one Texas A&M student, this hits close to home since it was his cousin who was one of the those 5.

"Its a roller coaster of sorts. still to this day theres not a day that goes by that anybody in my family is not affected by it slightly," Amado Martinez said.

Patrick Zamarripa was Amado's Godfather and cousin. With the memorial in the back of his mind and being back in Dallas, Amado says he is excited to see the support.

"This will be my first time around Dallas in that area since it happen, its going to be tough for sure but I know there is going to be a lot of support out there," he said.
