The shooting happened just before 11 p.m. at a gas station in the 19100 block of Telegraph Road. Police said the gunman entered the gas station and fired several shots, striking Damarian in the head and a 23-year-old man.
Doctors had to shave Damarian's head for surgery. The family believes he can recover. Damarian had just graduated eighth grade.
