'It's a miracle': 16-year-old Racine boy survives after being shot 10 times

’It’s a miracle’: 16-year-old Racine boy survives after being shot 10 times

RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A 16-year-old was shot ten times in Racine on Sunday, March 20. He is now recovering at Children's Wisconsin in Wauwatosa. 

"It's a miracle because he's supposed to be dead right now," Shavore Moss said. She is Tamarion Moss' mother.

Moss was shot in near Albert and Marquette Streets. 

Moss and his family had just left the corner store. He was walking alongside his 6-year-old cousin when two men pulled up, hopped out of a car and started shooting at him at point-blank range.

"The first thing I thought was to run to my son," Shavore said. 

CBS 58's Winnie Dortch: "Why do you think somebody would even do something that crazy?"

Shavore: "I don't even know, it was unexpected."

Moss was shot in his stomach, back and legs. He's already had three surgeries and more are scheduled. 

"I'm going day by day but it’s hurting inside," said Shavore. 

Family is left wondering what the Horlick High School student did to deserve this.

"He's not taking it good. He asked, 'why this happened to me? I don't do nothing to nobody,'" Shavore said.  

Shavore wants the shooters to turn themselves in, but she has a question for them. 

"I don't know why you guys did this to my son," she said. "What was your point? What was your point in doing this?" 

Shavore says she needs all the help she can get, including emotional support. The family has set up a GoFundMe page.
