    That was my son that was shot…channel 5 reported all wrong..this man is a danger to everyone and is not in his right mind. My son is going to be ok. He was moved out of ICU tonight..thank god. A mother never wants to get the call of your son has been shot in the head and is in intensive care. The not knowing was the part that was the most pain I have ever felt in my life. The police needs to find this guy! He is a repeat felon…FIND HIM!!!

      Glad he is doing better Pam. Praying for your son and the dangerous man that shot him. Praying for your strength as well. I have 4 sons and cannot imagine what you are going through right now. God’s protection over your family Pam.

Always tell your children “I LOVE YOU” because you never know when it will be the last…thank god mine wasn’t the last. He gets to hear it more 🙂
