Mother In Horror After Her 15 Year Old Son Was Shot While Selling Water. Jamarcus Truitt, 15, was shot near the intersection of Elvis Presley and Shelby Drive in Whitehaven two weeks ago, according to Memphis Police.
1 person was killed and 2 others were wounded in gunfire on Elvis Presley Boulevard.
Mother In Horror After Her 15 Year Old Son Was Shot While Selling Water. Takeitha Thomas, his mother, said that her son and a friend were selling the water to get funds to go to a Halloween haunted house.
According to MPD, the incident occurred just after 3:30 p.m., as Thomas was on her way to pick up the adolescents.
“His friend called me enraged and told me to hurry up and come ’cause he had been shot,” she told me.
According to an incident report acquired by WREG, the two kids were robbed by someone in a vehicle.
“The boy pointed the gun at him and tried to force him into his pocket and take off his pants.” My kid claimed he pushed him and warned him not to touch him, and the child became upset and hopped back in the vehicle, saying he was going to die, and that’s when he shot him twice,” Thomas said.
MPD shares fresh information on the shooting of a youngster while selling water.
Jamarcus was wounded in the arm and hip, according to her, and his companion managed to get him to a petrol station and phone for assistance.
“He was on the floor when I arrived. I became infuriated and couldn’t wait any longer for the paramedics. “I had them load him into my car and drive him to Methodist,” she said. “I was shocked. I was so shocked that I screamed. It’s a – I wouldn’t want this on any mother.”
Jamarcus is still in terrific shape. He’s had two operations and thousands of dollars in medical expenditures.
The suspect fled in a blue four-door car with a white item covering the driver’s side window, according to Memphis police.
