Aaron Mitchell, the primary suspect in the shooting of a 12-year-old boy, said that he is being wrongly accused in a jailhouse interview on July 21st. Mitchell claims he wasn’t near the Old East Dallas area that day and that he doesn’t even know of the streets where the crime occurred, near Washington Avenue and Hall Street. The boy was shot twice – once in each leg – as he was playing near the 3500 block of Munger Avenue in Old East Dallas on July 5, 2015.

Mitchell is now detained at Dallas County Jail for felony charges –three counts of aggravated assault and one count of injury to a child. His bail is set at $400,000.
