David's grandmother told us he and the 11-year-old boy were friends.

She believes the boy shot her grandson and her son, then took an Xbox, cell phone and some money from the house.

The 11-year-old is now charged with first degree murder.

The family tells us the father is doing better, but still has a long road of surgeries ahead of him.

A friend of the family has created a fundraiser on Facebook to help pay medical expenses.
