FSU student paralyzed in last week’s shooting improving
The condition of a Florida State University student critically wounded in last week’s shooting is improving, but his family says he is paralyzed from the waist down. Farhan “Ronny” Ahmed, from Apopka, was shot three times, including once in the spine.
In a press conference in Tallahassee Monday, his older sister Ferhana Ahmed said he was studying to become a biomedical engineer.
“It’s just me and him, so I’m really glad he’s still here because we need each other,” Ferhana said.
A fundraising campaign at YouCaring.com has raised more than $90,000 to help pay for medical expenses with a goal of raising $150,000. The shooter, Myron May, was killed by police.
