KENDALLVILLE, Ind. (WPTA21) – A shooting left one Kendallville man in critical condition. The man’s sister believes the gunfire was an accident.
Heather Jeffers said her 20-year-old brother, Jerremmy Hall, was hanging out with two friends on July 6th. She said someone tossed a gun and the weapon accidentally fired and hit her brother. Jeffers said the bullet ripped through her brother’s stomach.
Jeffers said her brother has been on life support since.
“He’s wrote on paper am I okay, am I going to die? He’s asked us all so many times am I going to die? How do you answer something like that? We have to tell him no you’re okay, but we don’t know if he’s going to be okay,” said Jeffers.
Jeffers said doctors have already performed four surgeries in the past six days and have removed parts of his small and large intestine.
“His body has already gone through so much and I don’t know how much he has left,” Jeffers said. “I hope he can make it through.”
We have reached out to the Kendallville Police Department and are working to confirm the details of the shooting. We will update you once we learn more.
Jeffers said her family has been driving back and forth to Fort Wayne each day to take care of Hall. If you’d like to help the family, please click here.
