From the victim’s mother:
“4 Black Males In Masks, near Huffman & Grant, Ran Up On Them Just After They Went To The Corner Store For Cigs & A Few Groceries & Sodas. The 4 Had A Gun & Demanded Their Belongings, They Took Everything, Including His $2 In Change From The Store & Their Phone.
The Scumbags Tried To Drag Off His Girlfriend & My Son Grabbed One Of Their Arms & Bending It Until He Heard It Pop. They Then Pistol Whipped My Son Whose Disabled With Seizures
His Girlfriend & Him Ran To The Nearest House Seeking Help & Asking For Anyone To Call 911. Neither One Are Sure If Shots Were Or Were Not Fired. Both Were Taken To Hospital & Are Now Home Resting.
