Dave Faherty, who works for Channel 9, was informed by neighbors that the adolescent will be undergoing surgery on Thursday afternoon. Keesha Ellison, the owner of the residence, stated that she was getting ready to go to bed when she heard six shots come from outside and immediately dove to the floor in response.

She stated that her son and several of her son’s friends were outside the house at the time that the 14-year-old was struck by gunshots. According to other neighbors who spoke with Faherty, this is the third time that someone has fired rounds at homes in the area, which has caused the people who live there to consider moving away.

“I think it’s awful. It needs to stop. It needs to stop. That’s an innocent kid—a good kid. He’s a football player for Statesville High School,” Ellison said.
