“Last night when I heard all of the ambulances… the young lady, she ran up this street to show the police where to go.”​

According to Dallas police, Clifton Norton, 33, had just picked his son up from a weekend visit at his sister’s house, when someone fired into the car.

Norton crashed the car into the porch, before stumbling into the house for help. His son was shot in the leg and remains hospitalized.

“It really, really, really, needs to stop,” laments Smith. “It does, it really needs to stop.”​

So far, police haven’t mentioned a possible motive for the shooting, but they’re hoping the reward will encourage someone with information to come forward.​
