“He was my son and I loved him dearly,” Annette Williams told Channel 11.
It’s been almost two days since Annette Williams learned her son, Prentis Hutchinson, was shot twice on the North Shore. He died at the hospital.

He was shot only a block away from the Andy Warhol Museum.
“My son was murdered, and we need to have some justice,” Williams said.
Prentis just recently celebrated his 35th birthday, and in a matter of days he was supposed to be welcoming his newborn child.
He’s already a father to three other children.

“I’m ready to run away, but I can’t. I have to be there for my other three children, his children and his new baby. I have to be there for him and stand in the gap for my son,” she added.
I also spoke with Prentis’ grandmother, who told me he was a family man, and had just recently visited her.
“I sat out here on the porch, and talked to him and encouraged him. Little did I know that was the last time I was going to see my grandson. It hurts so bad,” Ruby Hutchinson said.
“Wrong place at the wrong time. He was in the wrong place,” Williams said.
Their hope is for police to make an arrest to give them answers, and get Prentis justice.
“I think you should turn yourself in. Get it over with. Nobody knows what happened, but you need to turn yourself in so we can get some closure.”
A Pittsburgh Police spokesperson said this case is still under investigation, and no charges have been filed.
