A petition is underway to award a hero ROTC student of the Parkland high school shooting with full military honors and burial.

Peter Wang, 15, died last Wednesday when gunman Nikolas Cruz opened fire on students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida.

Peter’s cousin, who was inside the school at the time, said he last saw him holding the door open for other teenagers to flee.

He was wearing his ROTC uniform at the time and was shot in the head.

According to a neighbor who acted as a translator for his Mandarin-speaking parents, he was shot the most number of times by the gunman.

Now, his friends and others in the community are petitioning the White House.

They say he loved being a part of the cadets program and was proud to wear his uniform to school.

‘His selfless and heroic actions have led to the survival of dozens in the area. Wang died a hero, and deserves to be treated as such, and deserves a full honors military burial,’ the petition reads.

By Monday morning, it had received 25,000 signatures out of the 100,000 it needs.
