9-year-old injured in shooting in Columbus recovering after 3rd surgery

COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - A nine-year-old boy who was shot in his home on Andrea Drive this week is recovering after a third surgery on Friday.

The boy’s mother says he’s in stable condition at Egleston Children’s Hospital in Atlanta, but still has a long way to go. She says the bullet punctured his liver, kidney, colon, and spinal cord, which are being monitored very closely.

The 14-year-old shooting suspect will make an appearance in juvenile court.
