Teen Wounded in Drive-By Shooting Continues Recovery as Mom Hopes for Arrest

Police are asking anyone with information to come forward

A teenager wounded when someone opened fire on his Dallas home last month is getting back on his feet while his mother searches for a new place to call home.

Police investigating the March 18 shooting on Concordia Lane, near the University of North Texas Dallas campus, said they found nearly two dozen shell casings scattered across the road in the neighborhood.

"The first bullet went right by my face," said Melisha Rice, whose family had to quickly take cover when bullets began to fly through their Dallas home.

One of the bullets struck Rice's 13-year-old son in the leg.

"To watch him have to go through such agony and such pain for no apparent reason, from someone who was not a part of our lives before this and will now always be a part of our lives, it just sucks big time," Rice said.

Police have not released information on potential suspects, though Rice suspected the gunman was someone she had met recently and filed a harassment complaint against.
