BRADENTON, Fla. - The 4 year old victim shot this weekend by a stray bullet continues to recover Monday.  The child was reportedly hit in the head when the bullet came flying through his bedroom window.  His condition is currently stable but those close to the family say he has lost vision in one eye. 

According to Manatee County Sheriff's Office the shots came from a car that was traveling on 26th Street West in Bradenton.  Officials believe the bullets were intended for another car traveling along the road.  They are currently looking for Horatio Papillion, who is a person of interest.  Any one with information on this shooting or Papillion's whereabouts is asked to contact the Sheriff's Office.

Coming up on ABC 7 at 6 we will have more information on the investigation and we talk someone close to family, for a full update on the child's injuries.
