GoFundMe page started for man shot at Springs apartment complex

Posted: Updated:
COLORADO SPRINGS -

The innocent bystander hit in the crossfire during a police investigation at the Murray Hill Apartments remains at UCHealth Memorial Hospital Central.

Thomas Villanueva was visited by Team USA Olympian Jason Brown and Team USA Paralympian Allison Jones at UCHealth Memorial Hospital Central on Thursday.

The group spoke with him about how he's doing so far in treatment and brought along medals won in past games for him to view. For a young man going through a tough time it was an opportunity to bring a smile to his face.

Villanueva was walking through the parking lot on Monday when he got caught up in the gunfire. A friend says he was shot in the back with a bullet hitting his spine.

Villanueva's friend says it could leave him paralyzed, doctors not knowing if he will walk again. 

There's a GoFundMe account set up to help him in the long run.
