Padronage

Twenty-year-old Lincoln City resident Isaiah Padron (Padronage) says he lives to breathe another day because of his cell phone.

Padron said a white male, driving a black late-model four-door sedan near 950 SE 32nd Street & SE Fleet Avenue, shouted, “Hey you!” before shooting a bullet that struck Padron’s iPhone 7, sending shrapnel flying into the bridge of his nose.

“I went for a nice little walk and ended up barely getting home leaking blood,” Padron said. “Shrapnel from the phone scattered and got my nose.”

After the car sped off, Padron managed to make it to the Spyglass Apartments, where bystanders were able to assist him.

“I appreciate everyone who helped me,” he said. “I’m just lucky to be alive.”

Padron was taken by ambulance to North Lincoln Samaritan Hospital, where he received stitches and was released a few hours later.

“My ears started ringing and I couldn’t hear anything,” he said. “All I could do was try to stop the bleeding.”

Padron said a white male passenger accompanied the driver. He said he doesn’t know who shot at him or why it happened.
