4-year old North Carolina boy shot in head during home invasion

4-year old Jose Santiso Vargas was in his trailer home in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, when someone broke into his home and tried to get into his room, then shot through the door, striking the boy in the head.  Jose's father, a migrant worker, chased off the invader.

Jose underwent surgery and likely will survive.

From an article:

Jose spent most of last week in intensive care at UNC Hospital and was in stable condition Thursday morning. His head was wrapped in gauze and bandages, and nurses were doing their best to make sure his frail body stays comfortable at the beginning of what is likely a long recovery.  
Investigators say someone tried to force his way into the home off Plantation Lane outside Clinton about 10:30 p.m. Friday. When the man couldn't make entry into a bedroom, he fired into the door and the bullet hit the boy. 
Jose's father chased the gunman, who jumped into a waiting vehicle and fled.
