MurrayHill Shooting Tragedy

Thomas C Villanueva From Pueblo Colorado but Living in Colorado Springs Co. was crossing the parking lot of the Murray Hills Apartments on Mon, February 5th On his way home from getting carne asada fries from a mexican Restaraunt down the street when he stumbled onto the path that changed his life. He passed a group of people he did not recognize, and saw them start to fight with a resident of the apartments over a gun. He heard shots fire and ran, only to be brought to the ground seconds later. A bullet entered Thomas's left shoulder, passed through his spinal cord, and exited through his left lung. The people he had passed, nodded at, and made eye contact with were undercover officers. They were confronting an indivual when they were fired upon themselves. Moments later we finally saw armed and emergency responce, but officers were down in front of Thomas so he was the last to be taken into an ambulance. Its a terrible shame that people lost their lives in such a needless act of violence, but a young man like Thomas to be immobilized at 28 is an equal tragedy.  All funds donated go directly into Thomas's bank account. He needs financial security for his future as this is going to be a long process ahead and the funds will go towards his future needs and current needs because he will not be able to work. He is a survivor, he is our closest friend, and the jewel of his family. Thomas always lends a helpful hand to anyone in need and all donations will be extremely appreciated. This page was created by his family and closest friends who deeply love and care about him. Thank you so much and keep us in your prayers please!  if anyone would like more updates he will be happy to add you on facebook
