Emreon Bradford faced a tragic nightmare Saturday, when she was shot three times while in her sleep as an unknown suspect fired 20 rounds on her Brownsville, Miami home.
CBS 4 reported that 15-year-old Emreon suffered from gunshot wounds to her cheek, breast and arm. Emreon's stepfather, David Plunkett spoke on the incident saying:
I just thank God that you know it wasn’t worse. If someone has a problem with me, I don’t know about it. I can’t point a finger nowhere, because I don’t know nobody to say, "OK, we have an argument with this person or that person." There is nothing like that. 'I feel guilty, because I am the one who persuaded them that there is nothing scary about being in the ghetto. We just moved down here and are trying to make ends meet. Because of that, we moved in a cheaper area.
Emreon's two other siblings, Kiara 5, and David, 15, was both in the same room during the shooting. David called it a miracle that they weren’t injured as well.
The shooter is still on the loose.
Our prayers are with Emreon, who is recovering in Jackson memorial hospital.
