A witness, identified by the name Johnny, said he heard the boy screaming. "He was screaming, 'help someone, help me please,'" Johnny said as per news outlet Local 10.

"I bring him to the store so they can call the police for him," Johnny said. "He was conscious, then he fell on the sidewalk and said he had been shot."

Johnny said he is grateful that he was at the right place at right time to help the teen boy. "I feel very good. I couldn't sleep at all that night, you know?" 7 News Miami quoted him as saying.
