A 16-year-old boy named Dominic was shot on E. Virginia Street in Evansville on Thursday evening and his mother is asking the community for prayers as he enters his second surgery Friday.
According to the organizer of the GoFundMe page set up for Dominic, he was on his way to the store with his grandma at the time of the shooting, where he was robbed of a phone. Police say he was shot in the chest.
The GoFundMe page organized for Dominic says he remains unconscious and on a ventilator after his first surgery, and that a second surgery will be held Friday.
Evansville Police said that at the time of the shooting, four males were described as suspects. Four males matching the description of the suspects were quickly found and detained, before being taken to police headquarters to be interviewed by detectives.
The GoFundMe page organized for Dominic will help with medical expenses as his mother will miss some work to stay by his side in the hospital.
