Her son was shot in the stomach last week and now Barbara Rouse, the mother of 12-year-old Terrence, doesn't know where the two will live after their hospital visit is over.
"I got to have my stuff out of the apartment by tomorrow and my son is being released by Wednesday. They're evicting us because of the situation with my son. He's the victim but they say we have to move just because of the situation that happened," said Rouse.
Rouse says her 12-year-old son Terrence may have disciplinary problems from time to time, but overall he's just like any other kid. She believes he's being punished because both of them are being kicked out of their Northside Gardens apartment at
"And my son wasn't bothering anybody. He was at home at his own place minding his own business when he was invaded and was shot by whoever and whatever," said Rouse.
"Of course they do know things but because it's a continuing investigation investigators want to make sure that they keep as much information as they can to make sure the investigation is not compromised," said Tabitha Pugh with Warner Robins Police.
Rouse says the shooter, who's being held by Warner Robins Police, was actually Terrence's cousin.
"As far as I know, I don't know why he did it, but I know it's his cousin that did it to him. So they're not showing any remorse or anything about it. My son is just in the hospital wondering-- Why? Why they do this to me? He's in severe pain, and they just don't know why," said Rouse.
41 NBC tried to get in touch with management at Northside Gardens Apartment Complex to hear their reaction to the shooting and the eviction of the Rouse family, but no one could be reached.
