BRADENTON, Fla. -- A guns rights activist group is stepping in to a help a 5-year-old Bradenton boy injured in a drive by shooting.

Davien Martinez now needs a service dog to assist him. The Tampa Bay Gun Runners will pay the $11,000 it costs to purchase the dog.

A representative with the Gun Runners told the Bradenton Herald that they wanted to show Davien and the public that not all gun owners are bad.

A year ago, the young boy was lying in bed when a stray bullet was fired into his home, causing the loss of sight in one eye and brain damage.

Davien will be able to pick up his service dog on Saturday.

My name is Scott.
