18-year-old Seth K. unintentionally shot his best friend, 16-year-old Donavan A. in the back with a .22 caliber rifle. Donavan remains hospitalized and doctors say he is paralyzed from the waist down. His parents have asked for prayers for their son so that he can walk and "be a kid again."
Hundreds of people gathered Sunday night in the parking lot of a shopping center in Troy, Ohio. Holding candles and wearing t-shirts that said "Walk for Donavan" friends and family prayed that Donavan would one day walk aging.
Donavan's grandmother said, "There is a very good possibility that in our hearts and with the man upstairs that things will change and he will have the capability of walking again."
