Atlanta, GA– A 19-year –old Atlanta teen Orentheal Childs was left for dead after being shot 15 times for trying to leave a gang Feb.15.
Childs is still alive, having survived all 15 bullets that were fired at him for attempting to cut ties with a gang with whom he was affiliated.
U.S. Marshal Eric Heinz tells Fox News, “Never since I’ve been in law enforcement have I seen someone shot 15 times and live.”
“The victim told the other members of the gang, ‘Hey, look I want to go straight, be law-abiding,’ and they weren’t happy with it,” Heinz said.
The victim began crawling and moaning for help after being shot. The people that aided him are reportedly now in protective custody.
