After years of investigations, police revealed Ross Capicchioni’s shooter
It’s a high profile case from the US that had plenty of people talking. Moreover, the tragic story relates to how a fake friend shot an innocent teenager for his own personal gain.
As the case reopens, loved ones are mourning the loss with even greater pain as Ross Capicchioni’s shooter enters the limelight. Here are more details surrounding the case that just might break your heart into pieces.
Ross Capicchioni’s real-life story
Officers pronounced him as dead when his friend fired bullets, straight into his chest. Moreover, it was a so-called friendship that lasted 10 years. However, in this case, that simply wasn’t possible.
On the contrary, the stronger bond paved way for another teen’s desire to kill his friend. But you just might be surprised to learn how the innocent teen lived to tell his tale.
It was June of 2017, Ross Capicchioni’s shooter, who was actually his close friend, asked for a lift. Therefore, how could Ross resist?
Ross picked up the alleged shooter and took him downtown, to visit his cousin. But who knew that one ride would be the ride that led to his death.
A car lift that changed everything
The friends’ duo made their way towards a rough-looking neighborhood of Detroit. Ross’ friend wanted to visit his cousin for a long time. For that reason, the alleged shooter kept nagging him, for a week. Ross finally agreed, despite ‘initial’ alarm bells.
The duo arrived at the Eastside. Many described that exact location as a third world country. Moreover, it’s such a notorious location that police officers think twice before stopping.
It was broad daylight and Ross decided to park his vehicle at his friend’s ‘so-called’ cousin’s address.
Soon, they both got off of the car and then the most unthinkable thing happened.
A friendship based on lies
Ross Capicchioni’s shooter, his friend of 10 years, suddenly pulled out a shotgun. He aimed it at Ross and decided to pull the trigger. But why is a question on plenty of people’s minds?
Moreover, Ross didn’t die immediately. He later explained via YouTube video how the events actually unfolded. At the same time, he described what he felt and heard, at that very point in time.
“My ears are ringing, but when I glanced down towards the ground, I saw my arm hanging. Soon, blood starts flowing and this person is holding a shotgun, standing 10 meters from me. And he still has it aimed at me,” he explained.
“He literally blew a hole in my chest. Soon, I dropped towards my knees, and then to the ground. Moreover, I lost all air and I simply couldn’t see anything.”
Ross Capicchioni’s shooter and the motive behind the bizarre incident
Ross described in the video the massive hole in his chest due to his friend firing at him. It was like a shotgun spray. Meanwhile, he talked about how the bullets involved his skull also but thankfully, it didn’t blow off his head.
His friend left him to die, stealing his vehicle and swiftly making a run for it. Despite receiving shots to his arm, chest, as well as skull, he tried getting up. But he simply couldn’t. Slowly, he dragged himself where a probation officer found him and rushed him to the hospital.
Unfortunately, doctors pronounced him dead on arrival. But that wasn’t actually the case. Ross woke up, three days later, shocking the nurses at the ER. However, he had zero memory, other than his father’s phone number.
Soon, his family rushed in and that’s when Ross’s recovery process began. Shockingly, he only stayed for 5 days, after getting discharged to go home. Upon arrival, the FBI awaited Ross at the doors.
They informed how his friend was in their custody and what his motive was. Apparently, his ‘shooter friend’ had to fulfill an initiation of killing someone, before he could join a group. And in this case, Ross was the target victim.
