An Army vet may never walk again after he was shot in the back while leaving a St. Louis Cardinals home game on Friday.
An Army veteran has been paralyzed after he was shot during an armed robbery Friday night outside the Old Cathedral.
"My son lives in Houston and asked me 'Mom, what do you want for your birthday?' I said I wanted to go to a game with all of you, all my boys," said Candis Sanna, the victim's mother. "And this is what happens."
Around 10:30 p.m., Chris Sanna and his girlfriend were walking to their vehicle near Walnut Street and Memorial Drive when a black sedan pulled up to them. Two male suspects were inside the black sedan. The driver of the sedan exited the vehicle and demanded the victims’ property at gunpoint.
"After she gave him her purse, he pulled a gun," Candis said. "That's when they turned to run, and he shot at them twice."
The bullet went through Chris' liver, spine, and lungs. He was taken to the hospital and was listed in stable condition. But the Sanna family says it's the brazenness of the crime that has them shaken up.
