Just after 12:30 PM today, Deangelo Spears (20), received a gunshot wound to his lower back and was found inside a Hamilton Crossing Town-home.
According to police, Spears was very uncooperative about the shooting, and told them the shooting took place outside. Spears’ 24-year-old girlfriend reports that she had just gotten home from work and was in the bathroom doing her hair when she heard a “pop”. She then looked to see Spears wounded and her 3-year-old son with a pistol in his hand.
The mother took the gun from the child and placed it on the counter, before running outside to yell for help, prompting calls to 911. She placed the gun in a closet while waiting on an ambulance, where it was recovered by police.
Detectives attempted to interview Spears at the hospital this afternoon, but he refused to talk about the shooting.
