Shooting Victim Seeks to Forgive Unknown Offender
Daily Times of Pennsylvania – Shakiyl Smith was just 17 years old when he was shot in the back in August 2008 at a party in the city. An altercation broke out. Smith and others got in a car to leave. At that point someone opened fire on the car.
Smith has been in a wheelchair ever since.
The shooter has never been identified. Smith does not know who pulled the trigger that put him in a wheelchair. He certainly would like to, but not for the reason you might suspect.
Smith has no interest in revenge; he seeks to forgive.
Smith is asking immunity for the offender, but will the district attorney’s office grant the amnesty? Read more.
