Sisters remember 14-year-old brother shot and killed in Jackson

Local News

JACKSON, Mich. (WLNS) — 6 News sat down with the sisters of the 14-year old Cameron Kasprzycki. He was shot and killed on Friday night.

It’s the phone call no one wants, “I ignored it multiple times and finally answered out of annoyment,” said Cameron’s sister Christina Kasprzycki. “I answered it and she was just screaming it on the phone. Of course obviously your first thing is that it’s not true, it didn’t really happen. I kept telling her that no, it didn’t”

The sisters are devastated that their baby brother Cameron is gone.

“Every time he called us, he wanted to tell us about his muscles, he’s been working on them, or wanted to race us at every holiday event. He was very athletic and into sports,” his sister Cheri Kasprzycki said.

“He loved, he loved so hard,” said his sister Whitney Kasprzycki. “Especially having a lot of girls. Raised with so many girls I think he was bound to be that way.”

“I just hope people realize how serious it is, this gun violence,” said Cheri Kasprzycki. “A young, innocent kid got shot and killed because of why? Why? Why did you have to shoot him?

JACKSON, Mich. (WLNS) — A family is devastated and searching for answers after a deadly Jackson shooting.

Jackson police have not released the victim’s name, but his family said his name is Cameron Kasprzycki.

Police said the 14-year-old was shot and killed on Orange Street Friday night and his father found him lying by the driveway and called 911. Police also told 6 News he had a shot to his upper torso and was pronounced dead outside of their home.

His sisters are remembering Cameron and want justice. They said he was a good kid and the world is now missing somebody who was very important. He played cross country, basketball and track.

Even though he was their baby brother, the sisters said in so many ways it seemed like he was their big brother.

One sister said, “Everytime he called us he wanted to tell us about his muscles. He was working on them or wanted to race us at every holiday event. Very athletic, into sports, your average 14-year-old boy.”

Jackson Mayor Derek Dobies said he’s praying for the boy’s family and said “We are taking actionable steps to reduce gun violence in our city.”

Dobies also said he wants to work with Gallagher and the Jackson Moms Demand Action chapter to see what they can do for the family.

We will continue to follow this case and bring you the latest information about this investigation. If you have any information that can help solve this case call Jackson Police at 517-788-4100.
