“Gerald was on his way to my dad’s house, as he usually does in the evening, to watch TV. And then the vehicle followed them. He was on a cycle with another young man and right in front of my dad’s house is when the incident happened at close range; at approximately five feet cause he got four shots. The other young man jumped off the cycle and fled so unfortunately only Gerald received all shots. He got three shots to the head and one to the chest that destroyed his intestines and his organs.”
