JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A 2-year-old Jacksonville boy shot late last month as police were trying to stop a robbery and carjacking suspect is now listed in fair condition.
The boy continues to recover after being hospitalized in critical condition with gunshots to the arm and chest. His mother was shot in the foot and has been treated and released.
The boy was injured as Jacksonville police officers tried to stop Jeremiah Mathis, who had allegedly robbed a bank and car jacked the boy's mother in a fast food restaurant drive-through. Mathis died at the scene.
The state attorney's office is continuing its criminal investigation of the officers.
