Aberrican Me: Ross Capicchioni
Made by The Berrics, a skateboard park owned by the skateboarders Steve (Ber)ra and E(ric) Koston. The Aberrican Me series brings videos of pro skateboarders personal lives to light through interviews and reenactment.
In this particular episode, Ross Capicchioni is interviewed. When Ross was 17 year old, he was shot – to be killed – by his close friend. He was then left to die in the outskirts of the city he lived in, Detroit. But through sheer determination and a will to survive, Ross would battle on for his dear life.
This is his story.

Anyone know of a contemporaneous news story about this incident? There should be something, somewhere. If not in the newspaper, court records should exist. I live in Colorado where the nation went ballistic over ‘Balloon Boy’—remember how that turned out?
awesome…quite a guy.
Wow, that kid is amazing. He could conquer the world with that attitude and fight in him.

I think this is fake based on googling the trial and absolutely nothing popping up
