Thirteen-year-old Taije Chambliss was the victim of a drive-by shooting in Washington, DC on Sunday.
Taije was one of two people struck by bullets during a drive-by shooting. The other victim, an adult male who may have been the shooters’ intended target also survived with minor injuries.
“I’m deeply affected by the crime in our nation’s capital,” Lakisha Chambliss, Taije's mother said. “You know it’s just, it’s horrible to see these young people, older people, little children being hurt.”
Taije was released from the hospital but still has a bullet lodged in one leg.
