Tyreik Gadsden is now learning to use a wheelchair and to get in and out of bed by himself.

Gadsden was walking out of his home with his Grandmother who lives off of America street on May 22nd when he was shot. The bullet lodged near his spine and left him paralyzed from the waist down.

Tyreik is at a rehab hospital in North Carolina for specialized treatment and is expected to be there for about 3 more weeks.

At a fundraiser on Monday, about $10,000 was raised for Tyreik.
