A 27-year-old father and 2-year-old son were shot Monday night when the father tried chasing down some alleged thieves. The father, Darryl Myers Jr. received a call from a neighbor alerting him that there was suspicious activity going on behind his Winston-Salem, North Carolina home. Myers, who had been the victim of a recent break-in, drove home to try to catch the alleged robbers. He was accompanied by his toddler son, Darryl Myers II and Jennifer Yokely, 25-years-old. The woman’s relationship to the father and son is not currently known.
When Myers got to the back of his house, he found a black car parked there and tried to capture the men by blocking them in with his vehicle. The suspects managed to drive away however, so Myers pursued them in his vehicle. The suspects led Myers down several side street when they reportedly started shooting at Myers and his vehicle.
According to My Fox 8, Myers discontinued the pursuit and pulled into a Citgo convenient mart, where he noticed that he and his son had been shot in the foot. Both father and son were taken to nearby hospitals where they were treated for non-life threatening injuries. The female in the vehicle was unharmed.
