MILWAUKEE — Night three of the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee saw a mother from Indianapolis tell her story.

DeAndra Dycus is the mother of DeAndre Dycus, who was hit by a stray bullet while attending a birthday party in Indianapolis back in 2014. DeAndre was shot in the back of his head leaving him unable to speak and unable to walk.

His mother spoke at the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee via video chat from her home in Indianapolis.

“A stray bullet changed our lives,” she said. “Since March I have only been able to see my son three times. I can’t touch or hug him due to COVID-19. In towns across America, there are families who know what a bullet can do. That’s why I’m a mom who volunteers to stop this.”

Since her son was shot Dycus has been active with groups, such as Moms Demand Action.

“President Trump, he doesn’t care,” Dycus said in her address. “He didn’t care about the victims after Parkland, Las Vegas, or El Paso. I want a president who cares about our grief. A president who will take on the gun lobby to ban assault weapons and close loopholes to keep gun out of the hands of criminals.”

Dycus is confident Joe Biden is the person that will help accomplish these goals.
