PONTIAC (WWJ) – The investigation continues in Pontiac following a quadruple shooting on Monday which left one person dead and three others injured.
At least one parent of a shooting victim says they haven’t been able to check-up on their child in the hospital reports WWJ’s Vickie Thomas.
One of the victims, 19-year-old Willie Nelson IV, was shot in the chest and taken to McLaren – Oakland Hospital for surgery. “They won’t let me speak with him, they won’t let me see him – nothing,” says the father of Nelson. “They said he’s not here, but I know better. I’ve been here since he got here.”
The elder Nelson said that he’s not alone in this situation — the mother of a 17-year-old female shooting victim — telling Nelson that she was told her daughter had been released. “It’s like they fell off the face of the earth – they won’t tell us nothing about our kids,” said Nelson.
Shortly after the shooting Oakland County Sheriff investigators told WWJ that the shooting appeared to be a “robbery gone bad.” One person, a 23-year-old man, was found dead at a home on Thorpe Street, near Huron and Johnson, just after 4 a.m.
Two other people — a 17-year-old woman, a 17-year-old man — were taken to the hospital to be treated for injuries.
