The family said they got the scare of a lifetime, as someone shot more than 20 bullets into their home.
The bullets shattered windows and went through doors. One struck the teen who was asleep inside. There were multiple children in the home at the time, one as young as eight years old. There were also several adults, luckily none of them were hit.
“I just heard like ‘blah’ and I looked at my husband and the next thing you know it was like bam, bam, bam, bam, bam. All I could do was jump up, the first thing I did was run into the living room and it was full of smoke and I just grabbed my baby,” said Ebony Moore.READ MORE: UF Will No Longer Require Masks On Campus
“He didn’t deserve, I don’t know what happened, but he didn’t deserve to get shot. They need to stop, they really need to stop. All this shooting is crazy,” said Amy Williams, the teen’s grandmother.
The teen was taken to Memorial Regional Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
“It could have been a lot worse, you kids need to put these guns down and stop the foolishness, you’re hurting innocent people, and if you know something you need to say something because it’s me today and it could be you tomorrow,” said Moore.
Police said the teen who was shot is not cooperating and does not want to pursue charges.MORE NEWS: Gov. Ron DeSantis Signs Executive Order Pardoning All COVID-Related Charges & Arrests
