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.
