ROSS CAPICCHIONI: MIRACLE IN DETROIT


ROSS  CAPICCHIONI

Seventeen-year-old Ross was shot in 2007 and left for dead by someone he thought was his friend. He was shot three times at close range, including in his chest and head, as part of a gang initiation. Ross, who was not in the gang himself, was stranded in an alley, left to die alone, but he told himself this was not what he wanted to happen. 

He started drifting in and out of consciousness and remembers staggering... until he heard a man running toward him.

That man was Officer Vince Johnson, and he helped to save Ross’ life. After four years, Ross and his parents meet Officer Johnson for the first time, here in Anderson’s studio.
