3 people shot, family dog killed
On Saturday morning we woke up to realize a neighborhood kid had broken into our home while we were sleeping. He stole my son's wallet with 300$ cash in it , some jewelry and some other miscellaneous stuff. We knew who it was because he posted on snap chat wearing the hat he took. I went to this kid's home to speak with his parents but could not find them so I left them note to call me. While at the residence the kid a 17 year old boy showed up and threatened us. His neighbor watched this happen, the kid said he was going to get his gun and we needed to leave. We went home, I figured the parents would call me. But instead the kid Javion showed up to our house, walked into our garage where we were cooking for my daughters birthday party that was happening at our home and started yelling. My oldest step daughter Valori started yelling back telling him to leave, I told him to leave. He just kept saying he was going to get into trouble, I finally walked up closer to him and said you need to leave now. He punched me in the face, my son Patrick was standing beside me and immediately went to hit him back. Javion backed up slightly pulled a gun from his waist and began shooting. My son Taylor was hit in the ankle, the bullet is lodged in the bone and he requires surgery to fix the damage and remove the bullet. Because of this he is now on crutches, he cannot work. My dog Zero, jumped up and bit Javion, he shot Zero, my dog fell and Javion then fired 3 more shots, 2 hit my daughter Valori, 1 in the back 1/4 inches from her spine and 1 in the back of her thigh, the other hit the bbq pit. Zero then jumped again and knocked Javion down, he shot Zero 2 more times before he fell again, Javion then shot 5 more times 1 bullet hitting me in the leg. I am now on crutches and cannot work as I am a driver for Lyft and was shot in the right leg. I will have to see a vascular surgeon to repare the damage. The police still have not caught him and my younger children are afraid, hell I'm afraid! Javion sent us a message the day after the shooting saying he would "light us up" again. We need help paying for surgeries, medicines, general bills as now two of us cannot work and the vet bill to have my Zero the Hero put down after the surgeon said he couldn't be saved. The emergency room bills are ridiculously high, I just don't know what to do but this. Any help is appreciated and if you can't help thank you for taking the time to read this and pray they find this dumb kid with a gun before he hurts anyone else.+ Read More
You can clearly see the joint in his mouth and police had told us he said he was "barred out" when he shot us. We no longer feel safe in our home and are now looking for a place to move too quickly.
Javion made his 90,000 bail. He is out of jail and already doing drugs, my family and I do not feel safe that he may get high on something and hurt us again. Please share, we need help getting him locked back up.
Zero is home and has been placed with our family members who have also passed. It's hard, but I'm so glad he's here.
This is the link to the Washington Post when they aired our story. I feel they really did justice to our Zero and our family. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10158604270532293&id=6250307292
