Groom in Missouri Shot During Robbery on His Wedding Day in Backyard

Missouri Man Critically Injured in Backyard Wedding Robbery Shooting

The fairy tale wedding of Dulce and Francisco Gonzalez turned into a nightmare when two masked men attempted to rob the family in their backyard, resulting in Francisco being critically injured in a shooting.

The incident occurred just before 1 a.m. on Saturday in St. Louis, as the couple was celebrating their special day with about 50 relatives. According to witnesses, the armed suspects stormed the yard, announced a robbery, and proceeded to go through people’s pockets. One of the suspects pointed two handguns at Francisco before both fled on foot.

Francisco was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, where he remains with swelling in his brain. A GoFundMe page has been set up to support the family during this difficult time, with a family friend confirming that the couple’s two small children were also present during the terrifying ordeal.

Dulce’s sister recounted the harrowing moments when the suspects grabbed Francisco and held a gun to his head, resulting in a gunshot that left Francisco fighting for his life. The family, who has lived in the neighborhood for many years, now fears for their safety and is calling for justice in the case.

St. Louis police are actively investigating the incident, promising to do everything in their power to bring justice to the victim and his family. Despite the gravity of the situation, the family remains hopeful for Francisco’s recovery and asks for continued prayers and support during this challenging time.
