WELTS AFTER WELTS ALL OVER THIS 14-YEAR-OLD BOY’S BODY. NEXT TO SOME OF THOSE WELTS YELLOW PAINT SPLATTERED ALL OVER HIS T-SHIRT AND PANTS. HIS GRANDMOTHER SAYS THE SOUND WAS HORRIFIC. POP, POP, POP, POP, POP, POP. A MAN OPENING FIRE WITH A PAINT BALL GUN. OUT OF NOWHERE HE JUST STARTED SHOOTING. IT’S LIKE 25 WOUNDS MY SON HAS. THE SON SO OVERWHELMED WITH FEAR HE DIDN’T WANT TO SHOW HIS FACE ON CAMERA. THAT DREAD NOW FELT BY HIS FAMILY TOO. WE’RE ALL ON THE PANIC. WE DON’T FEEL SAFE. THE BOY WAS AT HIS HOME ON # 1TH AVENUE AND PATTERSON MONDAY NIGHT WITH HIS GRANDMOTHER. HIS GRANDMOTHER LOOKED OUT HER WINDOW AND SAW THE MAN STANDING BEHIND THE DOOR WITH WHAT LOOKED LIKE A REAL GUN. SHE BEGGED HER GRANDSON NOT TO OPEN IT BUT IT WAS TOO LATE. HE STARTED FIRING OVER AND OVER AND OVER. YOU CAN STILL SEE ALL OF THE PAINT ON THE STAIRS, THE FRONT DOOR, THE FRONT AND THE SIDE OF THE HOME. VASQUEZ SAYS THE SHOOTER WAS RIGHT HERE IN THIS AREA. THE PAINT BALLS WERE SENT FLYING EVERYWHERE IN A MATTER OF SECONDS. EVEN ON THE WALL BEHIND HIM. WHEN THE ATTACK WAS OVER VASQUEZ SAYS THE SHOOTER TURNED AROUND AND SLOWLY WALKED AWAY. HE SPENT THE NIGHT AT THE HOSPITAL IN EXCRUCIATING PAIN. THE BOY RECOGNIZED THE SHOOTER AS A SCHOOLMATE’S OLDER BROTHER. BUT NOW THEIR FAMILY STRUGGLES WITH THE QUESTION WHY WOULD ANYONE DO THIS.
