Kids get involved

Dewawn Matthews heard shouting outside and went out onto his porch to see what was going on. It was his mother and her ex boyfriend, arguing.

Dewawn's mother attempted to shoot the ex boyfriend. But someone grabbed her, and when the gun fired the bullet struck 12 year old Dewawn Matthews instead.

Dewawn Matthews was admitted to the hospital in critical condition, but doctors have said his condition has now stabilized.

Too many times kids get involved. No, his mother didn't intend to shoot him. Likely she will say that it was the fault of whoever grabbed her. But anytime you introduce a weapon into an argument you increase the danger to yourself and everyone around you. Even people who were not involved. In this case her 12 year old son. She pulled the trigger, her son was shot.
