Devyn Holmes is expected to survive after he was suffered a gunshot wound to the head Sunday, April 1.

“Devyn Holmes is breathing and responding on his own! God is working. And prayers are still coming.”
Devyn’s father also took to Facebook with a health update.
He wrote, “Hey. Got some positive vibes for you. He was alert, responding to command physically and breathing more on his own then yesterday. Now that’s some news you can repost. My lil mans a gentleman, scholar and a warrior.”
Devyn Holmes was sitting in a vehicle at a Valero gas station when Cassandra Damper accidentally shot him while goofing around.

The man was transported to Ben Taub Hospital in serious condition, and is on life support.
“The person that shot him says it was an accident,” Roberts added.
Cassandra was arrested and charged with tampering with evidence.
The case will likely be referred to a grand jury, Roberts said.
