A Texas father has been shot and killed at his 6-year-old daughter’s birthday party.
Calogero Dueñes, 24, was shot down in the parking lot of Chuck E. Cheese in Humble Friday night as he was carrying the birthday cake, according to police.
“We were just getting off, I had got my daughters free, I had to get stamped and prepare for them when their father came in,” his widow Amber Uresti told KHOU.

“He ran in and he screamed, ‘I was shot, I was shot.’ I ran out behind him, my daughters ran out behind me, they saw him lying on the floor,” she said.
“I have not seen my husband since he was lying on the floor. They did not even allow me to go with him. I did not even spend the last moments with him.”
Investigators say Dueñes was on his way across the parking lot when he encountered a young man in a Ford who was driving in the wrong direction; they exchanged words as the driver pulled out a gun and opened fire before fleeing the scene.
“I do not understand how anyone could do such a thing to anyone,” Uresti said. “He went with a cake.”

“I just hope he, too, is found quickly for the safety of society, because if he did this to my husband, I mean, imagine he could do this to anyone else, a child, anyone.”
Uresti, who also shared a three-year-old daughter with Dueñes, described him as a “loving, caring father, husband; he was so silly and playful; he was the class clown in high school.”
Uresti’s sister Rosemarie said the driver of the vehicle had tried to drive Dueñes over before shooting him deadly.
“Our whole family is devastated in this tragedy. He left behind 2 baby girls,” she wrote in a GoFundMe. “It was not like we expected to start the new year.”
