It was four o'clock, Saturday morning. Ronald and his cousin were at a drive thru. A man came to Ronald's window, asking if wanted to buy marijuana. He said no. The man went to another car, asking a woman the same thing. She also said no. Then, he grabbed her through her window. Ronald saw this and went to help. The suspect shot Ronald five times. The man ran, jumped into a car and left the scene.Almost reminds me of Blair Holt except while Holt was a cop's son he also was so very young. This story is still unfortunate and at least people will help another person in need, but it also illustrates the risks involved in doing so.
The shooter was wearing a white shirt and dark pants, but no further description was available, according to police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli.
Ronald Heard lived in Wrightwood. His father is a patrol officer at a South Side district, relatives said.
"He was just a great kid," said Ronald's uncle John Griffin. "He was what every father wants, he was what every mother's proud of. He was just a good example of how to raise a kid the right way."
