A Pennsylvania mother defended her son after he was accused of being involved in a shooting that left a 2-year-old and 6-year-old girl in critical condition, reasoning that since her son was gay, he couldn’t possibly have shot them.
“My son is gay. Gay people don’t shoot kids. Certain men don’t shoot kids… my son is innocent,” the mother said.
Police believe a domestic dispute led to the shooting of the two young girls at the Sherman Hills apartment complex in Luzerne County.
The victims were transported to the Geisinger Medical Center in Danville and were reported to be in critical condition.
Officers detained three men and two women, but the men were later released after investigators concluded there was insufficient evidence to tie them to the shooting.
