CORONADO, Calif. (KGTV) -- A Coronado teen who was shot during a jewelry sale gone wrong was welcomed home Wednesday afternoon after spending days in the hospital.

The streets were lined with cheerleaders and his football teammates as Jacob Mckanry rode into his neighborhood on an open convertible, waving to his friends and family.

Mckanry was shot on May 4 near Orange Avenue and 10th Street in Coronado. He was meeting up with two men to complete an online jewelry sale when he was robbed and shot.

The 18-year-old had to stay in the hospital alone because of COVID-19 visitor restrictions.

Mckanry said he feels like he got a second chance at life and believes he's lucky to be alive.

The two men wanted in connection with the shooting haven't been found.
