Chicago football star shot six times ‘thankful to be alive’
CHICAGO — A fundraiser is set for a football player who survived being shot six times hours after a game.
Everett Henderson, a standout Chicago Vocational Career Academy running back, was shot Sept. 10. Police said Henderson, 17, was standing in front of his home in the 10900 block of South Eberhart Avenue in Roseland when a gray car drove past and someone inside fired shots.
Henderson, who was shot two times in his hand and butt and once in his chest and stomach, told DNAinfo on Wednesday night he’s “walking a lot better.”
