"The subject forced the victim inside the vehicle and drove him to the area of NW 45 Street & NW 31st Avenue, where he sexually assaulted and shot the minor. The victim was then forced out of the vehicle and the subject fled."
News 10 reported that there was a witness. His name was Johnny and he claims how he heard the boy screaming.
The witness helped the boy walk to the Foodland Market at Northwest 47th Street and 37th Avenue, where they contacted 911.
Johnny told the reporters:
"I bring him to the store so they can call the police for him. He was conscience, then he fell on the sidewalk and said he had been shot."
The security footage from a local gas station captured the crucial moment when the child collapsed. First responders rushed him to the Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center, where he remains in critical condition.
