14-Year-Old Victim’s Family Seeks Justice
FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) — One day after the death of a 14-year-old German Serrano, there are prayers for justice at his home in Fort Worth.
Fort Worth police say Serrano was one of several people in a group at a home on the 3000 block of Hanger Avenue in Fort Worth, when a 24-year-old pulled out a gun and pointed it at Serrano’s head, pulling the trigger.
He shot the teen above the left eye and left the scene. The shooter later called police and told them he didn’t know the gun was loaded. Police brought him in for questioning and later released him.
Now Serrano’s family is furious the man responsible for their son’s death is not in jail.
“We want to know that he is actually paying for what he did,” said Flor Serrano, the victim’s older sister.
Conrado Guteirrez, the teen’s father, said he doesn’t believe his son’s death was accident.
Guttierrez said while his son is a teenager, the 24-year-old should have known better and should have to pay for his actions.
The family is pushing Fort Worth Police to seek murder charges.
“I feel like they aren’t doing enough,” Flor Serrano said. “He’s a 14 year old, I mean come on. The 24 year old had to know what he was doing.”
Gutierriez said his son is still a kid, a baby, whose life was tragically cut short.
Their only consolation now is knowing that their son gave life to others through organ donation.
