Investigators said a white vehicle pulled up in front of a house and someone fired shots.

7News spoke with Terri Cochran, the mother of the shooting victim, CJ Jarrett, 18.

He was hollering, ‘Mom, mom, help me, help me,'” explained Cochran. “When I came running through here, I said ‘What’s wrong?’ He said “Mom, I’ve been hit.”

Cochran told us that Jarrett was shot four times while smoking on their front porch.

“This wasn’t intended for my son,” she said. “I don’t know if it was the people who lived here before, I don’t know.”

She said Jarrett was supposed to start a new job at Michelin on Friday.

No arrests have been made.
