On a positive note, News 6 is reporting that 8-year-old Ross Minor, who was shot by his father, Mark Minor, earlier this month was released from the hospital on Tuesday. On a sad note, Ross has sustained injuries that blinded him.
Ross Minor and his brother Ryan Minor, 10, were shot by their father earlier this month. Mark Minor, 44, the boy’s father, shot his children while they were in their bed sleeping, deputies said. Mark Minor then shot himself and died at the scene, deputies said.
Both boys were rushed to Carolinas Medical Center with life threatening injuries. Ryan Minor died at the hospital June 15. Grace Minor, the boys’ mother, found her husband holding a gun, and her two boys in bed, critically wounded.
