It was a call no mother wants to receive, but one Amarillo mother who wants to remain anonymous got a dreaded call her son was shot. "When I got the call they just told me he had been shot. I was just hysterical I just didn't know what to do. I had to get back here as soon as possible," she explains

When she arrived at the hospital she found out her son endured 6 gunshot wounds to his back in front of the Stepper's nightclub.

She said, "He was out and him and this guy got into it and they've fist fought.  Then they come back and just shoot you ".

The incident happened at around 4:10 a.m. after the night club let out for the night. According to police a fight ensued between the victim and a female suspect Curby Brown and Antoine Gentry. Police say Brown gave Gentry a gun, which he used to shoot the victim 6 times causing hours of agony that police say could have been prevented.
