Murfreesboro, Tennessee (WKRN) —It’s been a week since 18-year-old O’Brien Henry was shot dead in Murfreesboro. Detectives say they are still trying to figure out who is responsible.
Now Henry’s mother wants an answer and is calling on people to drop their guns.
“They said my son was shot, and he just quit his job, and they called immediately after 10 minutes and told me he didn’t think he had done it. “Crystal Watkins recalled.
Watkins says it was around 2 am when one of his son’s friends called him to inform him that O’Brien had been shot and headed to the hospital.
Watkins explained that he lived in Brownsville and her son lived in Murfreesboro with his real father. She said it was a phone call that her mother shouldn’t receive when she heard her son was in the hospital.
“I was confused, had questions and answers, and didn’t ask God, but I just want to know what my son thought, what happened, and why it took four and a half hours to get in touch. “I” said Watkins.
According to Murfreesboro police The shooting took place at the Social Murf Apartment Complex At Wenlong Drive. When the police arrived, they found a white Chevrolet truck. Inside, Henry with multiple gunshot wounds was found.
First responders immediately took him to a nearby hospital, where he died shortly after his arrival.
“My son doesn’t deserve this as I said, so I hope they find them. My son is a really nice and happy person. No one deserves to be shot. But I forgive them, I forgive anyone who did it, but we pray for justice, “Watkins said.
Sadly, this isn’t the first time Watkins had to experience the aftermath of a pointless shooting. Three years ago, her husband was shot six times and is now paralyzed.
