Tuesday morning Danny Gilmore age 14 was on his way to school when he was shot three times. Danny was a freshman at Douglass Academy high school.
Danny’s grandmother advised him to take a quicker route but he ignored her and walked the opposite way. Danny and some of his friends had just brought juice and chips at a store two blocks away from his home.
A worker at the store called Stop N Save said, “as soon as they walked out of the store 4 or 5 gunshots were fired. His friends ran but Danny was already lying on the ground bleeding.”
Later that afternoon Danny pulled through his surgery.
‘He’s a charmer, but was spontaneous and likes to make his own mind up about things.” Donna Crocker his mother said.
There is nothing wrong with having a mind of your own but his grandmother warned him and he just didn’t listen!
