He had just given liquid DNA hours before the projectile that left him fighting for his life.
The man and two friends were picking up some extra controllers to have a good time and play video games.
They were in the parking lot of an apartment complex on the West Side of Baltimore.
Soon after a masked man took his belongings and than hit him with a projectile.
“My sunshine, Declan is the type of guy who does anything and everything for everyone else,” said his
mother LaShell Richardson.
She's at his side at a hospital in Chicago.
He was transferred to a specialist there after he was pronounced gone on arrival the night that he was hurt.
As he and his friends left the store, a man in a mask ambushed them and as Declan ran away, he was hit in the groin.
“He was emptying out and as a result of that he sustained a head injury because he went for a period of time without oxygen.”
