JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Bradley Cowart, 14 years old, was walking home from Robert E. Lee High School on Monday when he was shot multiple times, according to police.

He was taken to UF Health in serious condition. His grandmother, Deirdra Padgett, said he is now walking and talking again but has a long road to recovery.

Padgett said Bradley was walking home from school just after 2 p.m. when he was shot multiple times at the intersection of Willow Branch Avenue and Forbes Street. Around 4 p.m., family members went looking for the teen around the school because they hadn’t heard from him.
