A mother of three was sadly shot and killed on Friday night in Chicago. Police report that she was at a cell phone store with her sons when a stray bullet hit her.
She had gone to get her son a phone as a reward for a good grade.
ABC 7reports that Candice Dickerson, 36, was with her sons inside a MetroPCS store around 7:30pm in the 5900 block of South Kedzie Avenue when the bullet hit her.
Apparently, she was standing by the counter when the bullet penetrated the back of her head.
”She was trying to get down, but they shot her before she got down and she started bleeding,” said her son, Jacarey, 12. “I was scared.”
The brave young boy witnessed everything and said his mother was crying and attempting to get herself up.
“I thought she was very brave. I thought that maybe she’d be able to survive, but when we got to the hospital, she did not survive,” he added.
She was pronounced dead at Advocate Christ Medical Center.
Chicago police are currently investigating and no suspects are in custody yet.
