Boy Finds Safety With Stranger During Dallas Shooting

Posted: Updated:

In the chaos of the shooting in Dallas that left 12 law enforcement officers shot, five fatally, a boy found safety with a stranger after he was separated from his family on Thursday, NBC News reported.

Angie Wisner, a mental health technician and mother of three, went to Thursday's protest in Dallas because she wanted to "come away with something for my kids."

Instead, she walked away with someone else's kid.

"We kind of ran into each other," Wisner, 33, told NBC News. "We were running and he came up to me and said, 'Ma'am can I come with you because I lost my mama.' He was shaking, out of breath, he was scared. And I said of course."

After running for about 30 minutes trying to avoid death and injury, JaJuan and Wisner found shelter with a stranger who let them take cover in an apartment.

Wisner learned later that the boy's mom had been shot after a relative came to pick up JaJuan.
