Update: Teen Critically Wounded

More Video...

The flashing lights of police cars are not what Shealee brown, 17, remembers from Friday night.

What she does remember, "I hear I am shot I am hit, I'm hit," said Brown.

Her boyfriend, Salvador Partida, 18, was shot standing outside a home near 39th street and Ames Avenue.

"He had blood all the way down his back, and he was holding his chest with blood just dripping all the way down," said Brown.

Partida declined to go on camera, but over a Facebook conversation he said he was standing outside with friends when someone started shooting.

Brown said she was standing on the porch. "All of a sudden you just hear a couple shots go off, bop, bop. And then it started going faster and faster," said Brown.

Partida said at least six shots were fired, but only one hit him.

Brown said the bullet went through Partida's arm, then into his chest here, hit a rib and then came out through the top of his chest.

"I thought I was going to lose him," said Brown.

Both Brown and Partida want the same thing. "I just want the people, who ever did it, to be thrown in jail," said Brown.

Partida added on Facebook, "I don't want my parents go in to my early funeral because that happens around here."
