"We were at a huge, outdoor Halloween party and a fight had just broken out, and a shot went off. It was that simple. I remember hearing the shot, I don't remember who did it or even where it came from. I ran back and saw him laying on the floor.
I remember sleeping in the hospital that night and they were like, 'Man, we don't think [your brother is] going to make it.'
"They took him to the ambulance. I remember sleeping in the hospital that night and they were like, 'Man, we don't think he's going to make it.' I couldn't even say anything. We woke up the next morning and they said he was doing better, so from there it was like we really had to do something with ourselves. It was really an eye opener for me. I said to myself, 'Man, life is short. If you really want to follow a dream it's now or never.'
"My brother still has long term injuries from it. He's good and he can move, but he still has pains that he goes through."
