Paraphrasing by "The Benevolent Dictator"
DETROIT -- A 7-year-old-girl is being hailed as an "angel from heaven" and a hero for jumping in front of an enraged gunman, who pumped six bullets into the child as she used her body as a shield to save her mother's life.
Alexis Goggins, a first-grader at Campbell Elementary School, is in stable condition at Children's Hospital in Detroit recovering from gunshot wounds to the eye, left temple, chin, cheek, chest and right arm.
Little Alexis was shot by her mother's boyfriend, Calvin Tillie, 29, a four-time convicted felon.
On Saturday, Alexis' mother called a family friend, Aisha Ford to come them up from Parker's home because Parker had no heat.
Ford said she drove her burgundy 1998 Ford Expedition to Parker's home on Dwyer. She said as Parker and Alexis walked up to her vehicle she saw a man on the porch, who she assumed was a furnace repairman. She said Alexis, who walks with a limp, slipped momentarily on the icy sidewalk and as she helped the girl up, she saw the man and recognized him as Tillie. He was holding a gun. Tillie ordered them into the vehicle, cursed at the women and angrily told Ford to drive him to Six Mile Road, she said. SOURCE
"The first operator clicked off and I dialed again and told that operator a guy with a gun was holding me hostage with a mother and baby and threatening to kill us. I told her the name of the gas station and then she said they didn't have a unit to send." (WTH?!?!?!?!?) SOURCE
Still waiting for Detroit's finest to show up managed to convince the boy genius ( the four-time cnvicted felon) that she needed evev more gas. When she went back into the station, the stations attendant notices she was crying and he called 911 AGAIN when she told him what was happening. That is when they heard shots coming from the car.
Before Tillie could fire again, Alexis jumped over the seat between her mother and the gunman and begged him not to shoot her mother. SOURCE
Then the four time convicted felon "without hesitation" pumped six shots into little Alexis.
After all the carnage, Detroit's finest managed to get there, surround the car. Oh did we mention that a police car was on the street nearby and they came only five minutes after the station attendant's call. I guess the call from a Black woman in Detroit does not merit attention.
Alexis is now in the hospital covered in bandages. She is in special eduation and has a weak left eye as a result of a stroke she suffered as an infant. Doctors had predicted that she would grow up to have difficulty with basic tasks such as writing, but Alexis was now able to write her own name.
The nutjob boyfriend is in jail facing kidnapping, assault with intent to murder, child abuse, felony firearms and habitual criminal charges.
