LAWRENCE, Ind. -- A Lawrence, Indiana teenager will not survive being shot in the head over the weekend, police say. 

The family of Daron Johnson, 14, told police they have to make a tough decision about removing him from life support.

“I just remember me being with my son that day, early in the daytime and I didn’t know that I wasn’t going to see him,” said Daron’s mother, Cheree Sampson. “I didn’t know that I wasn’t going to see him.”

The cause of that argument is still under investigation, but Daron’s family says he wasn’t even involved in the fight.
