His mother said that a 9-year-old girl, who was shot four times in Atlanta, had surgery and recovered.
Keyona Carson told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that her son Javonni Carson was filming TikTok videos in eastern Atlanta when someone had passed by and shot a crowd, wounding Javonni and two adults. She said that Gaffoni was shot four times in the left leg and his father took him to the hospital.
“My other two kids were there too, and they saw everything,” Kyona Carson said. “Someone passed his car and started shooting.”
The police said the three victims were expected to live. Police believe an argument led to the shooting.
The authorities said that the officers recovered 42 shell casings from the scene. No arrests were made.
The shooting came days after the 8-year-old was shot by Securia Turner and was killed during the July 4th weekend in Atlanta.
Carson said she was sad when she heard of Turner’s death and felt her lucky son had survived.
“I just thank God, he is still here,” she said of Gaffoni. “They no longer have their child. I cannot imagine.”
