(WJBK) - A local teen was shot in Yemen while traveling there to visit family.

Thirteen-year-old Jayzon Mosed was spending the summer with his father. Jayzon was riding in a car with family when several men with rifles surrounded them and started shooting.

Two people were shot along with Jayzon.

His mother, Amanda Mosed, heard the news and is now headed to Yemen. She's trying to get him airlifted to a different hospital for better care.

She tells Fox 2 the boy is in the hospital where several of the patients are women so his father can't be there with him.  

At last check, Jayzon was in critical condition.
