After an 8-year-old was shot in Virginia Beach, the community spoke out.
Heughins reported to News 3 that although Landyn continues to have a breathing tube down his throat, he is awake and aware of his surroundings.

“We are ecstatic,” Heughins remarked. “He is awake but unable to communicate due to the breathing tube still being down his neck. When his mother speaks to him, he continually clenches his face and sobs.”

Steven Davis, Landyn’s father, claims that his son is being gradually brought out of his coma, saying, “Today was exciting. When they attempted to brush his teeth, he moved both his arms and legs in addition to moving his head. We made an effort to keep him from becoming overstimulated because he would cry and become angry when he saw me or his mother.”

Additionally, Davis informed News 3 that after establishing that his kid is able to breathe adequately on his own, they plan to remove the breathing tube from his throat sometime in the following two days.Around 6:15 p.m. on February 13, multiple 911 calls and ShotSpotter reports of gunfire on Peele Court were received by Virginia Beach police.
