KANSAS CITY, Missouri — A 10-year-old Kansas City boy who was paralyzed in a shooting that killed his father has been released from the hospital.
Police say the April 18 shooting outside a gas station left 34-year-old Ka'Vyea Curry II dead and his son paralyzed from the waist down.
Twenty-seven-year-old Dontae D. Jefferson has been charged with first-degree murder and five other felonies. Prosecutors say Jefferson walked up to Curry as he was getting into his car and fired eight shots, with one bullet hitting the boy. A 5-year-old boy was not injured.
Children's Mercy Hospital says Ka'Vyea was released Monday, and will begin therapy Tuesday.
The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/1lNJlf3 ) doctors have given his family different odds on whether Ka'Vyea will regain some mobility.
