Louis Saxton

Louis Saxton is a gifted musician who graduated high school in Bemidji during the pandemic year and went off to college to study cello in Boulder Colorado. This week, a shooter killed 10 people at a grocery store across the street from where Louis lives as a student. On the Wednesday Morning Show Louis's dad, Robert Saxton, told us what it was like to discover that his son was in the grocery store when the shooting began, how he was able to survive the event, and how their family is coping with their feelings in the aftermath.

(In this video from the Ft Collins Coloradoan, Louis Saxton pays his respects by playing cello for those who died in the shooting.)
