Malik was shot unexpectedly with an assault rifle by the shooter who fired three times into the vehicle from the rear passenger window striking Malik once in the head before fleeing the scene.
It is a miracle that Malik survived the shooting and was able to name the last person who was with him prior to the incident. Malik has a long recovery and medical attention and rehabilitation will be extensive. We are asking for support and assistance from those who know and love Malik, as well as from those who are against violence against our youths who are trying to make a positive impact to our society.
