A Perteet family photo. In September 2009, fourteen year old Ondelee Perteet was shot in the jaw during a birthday party melee on the city's West Side. The bullet severed his spine, paralyzing him from the neck down. Ondelee was told that he would never walk again by his doctors but two years later he is beginning to walk with the help of crutches. He can move his hands and play video games with his left hand and his mouth.
