PRATTVILLE, AL (WSFA) -

20-year-old Dre DeRamus was shot in his relative Michelle Stoudemire's driveway.

"I heard the gunshot," Stoudemire said.

Stoudemire says she didn't witness the shooting but says the alleged shooter, 16-year-old Dantrell Lascott Reeves, and DeRamus were close friends who would hang out everyday at her house.

"This is everyday I used to go to work. They used to be here, so I can't get no understanding of what made him do what he did do," Stoudemire said.

Relatives say it was over a dispute. Police have charged Reeves as an adult with second degree assault. He's being held a $15,000 bond at the Autauga Metro Jail.

Police say DeRamus was shot in his stomach. "He's bleeding on the inside," Stoudemire said.  

"We have recovered a weapon that we do believe is connected with the shooting," Prattville Police Chief Tim Huggins said.

Police say this is the second recent shooting on Cobsy Court. In April of 2011, Stoudemire's cousin was shot and killed in the middle of the street. Now, Stoudemire has to face another shooting of another relative.

"This just brings back memories to the community," Stoudemire said.  It's a lost life and a young man fighting to stay alive.
