‘He was just sitting there in the car and someone shot him.’
A 12-year-old boy is lucky to be alive after he was shot multiple times in Chicago while shopping for school supplies with his father.
Lamar Davis was sitting in a parked car in the city’s Lawndale area on Wednesday, when a maroon SUV pulled up, rolled down a rear window and someone opened fire with a .45-caliber handgun, per the Chicago Tribune. Davis was struck in the back, hip, leg and buttocks. His father was not wounded. At this time, it appears the attack was random.
The child was treated at a local hospital and released the next day, according to the report. He must undergo follow-up treatment in the weeks ahead.
Davis told his family that he has no idea who shot him or why.
“He was just sitting there in the car and someone shot him,” Lamar’s mother, Melissa Robinson, told the Chicago Tribune.
“Kids can’t go outside, they can’t do anything,” she added.
