Ware currently is in the hospital with life-threatening injuries. On social media, Ware’s parents asked for prayers for their son.

One woman that was interviewed by ABC 11 said, “My heart goes out to them, I can’t even imagine how they feel. It must be just a horrible thing just to have something like that happen to your son. The fact that someone would target someone like that, just an innocent person with their life ahead of them.”

Police are asking for anyone with information on the shooting to call Crimestoppers at 919-683-1200. We will continue to keep this family in our prayers.
