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.
