Shooting Victim's Family Speaks Out

"It was a blessing because it could have been worse, we just thank God he's doing good, he's doing real good," said Ashati Price and Antwone Thomas.

Ashati is Chris Cerna's wife and Antwone is his brother, both want to share just who Chris is.

"He loved basketball, anything really just to get his blood going," Antwone said.

"He's a good person, just out going and fun. Fun to hang around with and just fun to be with period," added Ashati.

Late Monday afternoon, Chris' mother says her son found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time.

"He was walking down the street with his friend to go play basketball down at the school yard and all of a sudden we got a phone call saying he had been shot," said Carmen Pauda, Chris' mother.

"There was like five different people who called 911, I was one of them," said Chris' sister, Angel McNeal.

Angel was just blocks away when her brother was shot and rushed to his side.

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

"He's still in critical condition. He is stable and he is responding. He's doing better," said Carmen.

Carmen has a message for whoever shot her son, "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."
