Shooting Victim's Family Speaks Out

The family of the Lubbock teen shot in the middle of the street Monday is now pleading with the shooter.

Chris Cerna, the 17-year-old victim, remains in critical condition at a Lubbock hospital. Cerna was walking along the 500 block of 42nd Street with a friend around 3 p.m. Monday afternoon. That's when a bullet came through a window of the house at 528 42nd street and hit Cerna in the stomach.

Cerna's mother says she's not angry, but she's asking the person to turn himself in.  

"All I want to say to him is please turn himself in, face what he's done. I mean, I have no hate for him because really I don't know if he did it intentionally or if it was just an accident so I have no hate for him. All I want him to do is turn himself in and face what he's done," said Carmen Pauda, Cerna's mother.

"He asked me to hurry up and put him in the back seat of my car because he couldn't sit up straight. He kept telling me to please hurry because he couldn't hold on no more," said Cerna's sister, Angel McNeal.

The suspect is still on the loose. He's described as a black man standing 6'0" tall and weighing around 200 pounds. He was last seen wearing a white muscle shirt and blue jeans and police believe he may be armed and dangerous.

Police also say they want to talk to a man named Terrence Essex who is being called a person of interest.

If you have any information about either of these men, call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.
