Mom Says 11-Year-Old Son Had Gun Pulled On Him, Was Forced To Fight After School
An 11-year-old Houston boy was forced to fight a group of teenagers after a gun was pulled on him after school, his mother says.
FOX 26 reports that an 11-year-old Houston boy was forced to fight a group of teenagers after a gun was pulled on him after school.
“They could have killed him, and before the video even started, they put the gun up to my son’s head,” Lucille Longoria, the boy’s mother, told FOX 26.
The episode occurred last week. The boy walked home from Budewig Intermediate School at an apartment complex off Shadowbriar Drive and Richmond Avenue. and was confronted by a group of teenagers. According to Longoria, the teens not only brandished a gun but coerced her son into a physical fight, an ordeal that left him emotionally scarred.
“He was attacked by two random guys…he doesn’t know these boys, at all. He doesn’t know them at all,” Longoria said.
A video of the altercation has surfaced on social media. “Took a hard jab at my son, then he busted his nose. They stomped on him.”
In response to the incident, Alief Independent School District issued a statement that it was aware of the video and that it did not occur on school grounds. “We worked with local authorities to identify the students in the video and were able to confirm that there were some that were current students in our district,” the statement concluded. “We do not condone bullying of any kind, and we encourage our students to make better choices.”
Longoria, however, insists on holding the responsible parties accountable.
“What those other individuals did to my son is not OK,” she said. “They need to be held responsible. We need to get them off the streets.”
Longoria is looking to her move her son out of Alief ISD.
