The young black boy shot for ringing wrong door bell is recovering

Ralph Yarl, the 16-year-old boy who was shot twice in Kansas City, Missouri, for ringing the wrong doorbell, has been photographed recovering at home after surviving a catastrophic brain damage.
According to an Instagram post by author and activist Shaun King on Wednesday, April 19, Yarl, who was shot in the head and arm by suspect Andrew Lester, 84, was shown seated on a bench, smiling, with one of his attorneys, Lee Merritt. After being hospitalized following the shooting on Thursday, April 13, the teen was described as a “walking miracle with a head of steel” by King.

King wrote: “Ralph suffered a traumatic brain injury that he is still recovering from. Had the bullet hit his head a fraction of an inch in any other direction he would probably be dead right now.

“He is expected to make a FULL recovery, but it will take time. He noted that Yarl has doctors and family helping him around the clock and that they have hired a trauma-informed psychologist and therapist to treat the gifted musician.

Faith Spoonmore, Yarl’s aunt, also spoke of her nephew’s miraculous recovery as the family rallied behind him.

“A true miracle considering what he survived,” she wrote. “Each day is different. He has a long road ahead. However, we are very thankful that he is still here with us.”

Yarl’s status has been updated after his mother, Cleo Nagbe, stated that her son was lying in bed, thinking about the shooting and crying.

Last week, the 16-year-old went to the incorrect residence while trying to pick up his twin brothers from a sleepover.

Lester, the gunman, surrendered on Tuesday, April 18, and was released on $200,000 bond. He said he was ready to retire to bed when the doorbell rang.

Lester stated he was “scared to death” because someone was breaking into his house.
