Police: 14-Year-Old Will Not Survive Bullet Wounds to Head

The family of Daron Johnson, 14, told police they have to make a tough decision about removing him from life support.

LAWRENCE, Ind. -- A Lawrence teenager will not survive being shot in the head over the weekend, police say. 

The family of Daron Johnson, 14, told police they have to make a tough decision about removing him from life support.

“I just remember me being with my son that day, early in the daytime and I didn’t know that I wasn’t going to see him,” said Daron’s mother, Cheree Sampson. “I didn’t know that I wasn’t going to see him.”

The cause of that argument is still under investigation, but Daron’s family says he wasn’t even involved in the fight.

A 14-year-old was taken into custody early Sunday morning but police believe there may have been other people who fired shots.

If you have any information about this shooting or anyone who may be involved contact the Lawrence Police Department or Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-8477.
