Corderro Stevenson, a sixth grader at Aldine ISD, was shot dead when a hail of bullets hit his family’s home on Alabonson Road on May 12. Corderro was taken to the hospital. He’s been home for more than a week. His mother has hardly left his side.
“I know it’s not my fault. It is not his fault. You know, it’s just unfortunate that we have to go through this,” Shavonna Clark told ABC13.
ORIGINAL STORY: A sleeping 12 year old was hit by a stray bullet as 80-100 shots were fired at a nearby NW Harris Co. club.
The situation of the family shows how much indiscriminate violence can affect a victim and his family.
Harris County Sheriff’s Investigators say 80 to 100 shots were fired in a firefight outside a club across the street from Clark’s apartment. Corderro was sleeping on the couch. To this day he still has a bullet in his left side and feels “just sad”.
“I don’t know how I feel,” he added.
It’s been a tough time for the boy, who is still in pain but just wants to get back to school, his mother said. In the meantime, she needs a safe place for him and his little brother.
Too scared to return to the bullet-riddled apartment, they slept on the floor and couch at the boys’ grandparents’ house. The violence that has befallen this innocent family cuts deeper than the physical wound.
“What will be the result of this? It’s really my concern,” Clark said. “Not just being evicted, but how will that affect him in the long run?”
A representative for the office of Harris County Commissioner Rodney Ellis told ABC13 that they are exploring potential counseling and housing resources for Corderro and his family. A relative also set up GoFundMe help.
