13-Year-Old Shot in Denver While Driving Home from School with his Mom

A 13-year-old Coloradan was shot in Denver Monday afternoon while driving home with his mom after his first day of high school. 

CBS Denver reports:

“Some crazy guy was screaming and yelling in the road and I told him to move because I almost hit him, and I slammed on my brakes, and then we got like 4 or 5 houses down the street and then he started shooting at us and it was just my car,” said the boy’s mother Kiri Willis.  

“We heard the gunshots and he said, ‘Mama I’m bleeding… I’ve been shot.’”    

She stopped the car and flagged down a police officer at 14th and Downing. The boy was rushed to the hospital.
