VALLEJO, California — The mother of a shooting victim is speaking out saying her son could’ve been saved. Video shows the woman pleading for help as her son is dying from a gunshot wound outside of Sutter Hospital in Vallejo.
23-year-old Damon “Dada” Ferguson was hit by gunfire on Vanessa Street and Adele Drive.
The Vallejo woman says she waited for more than half an hour for an ambulance to arrive before rushing him to the hospital herself.
She wants to know why it would take so long to get help and why she was met with disrespect before her son died at the hospital.
Vallejo City Council member Hakeem Brown was outraged after seeing the video on Facebook and immediately called the EMS company “Medic Ambulance” for answers.
Brown said one medic was placed on unpaid leave as an investigation is underway.
