UPDATE: Chris Davis underwent his fourth surgery to repair damage from a bullet after the Katy father of three boys was shot nine times by masked men on February 20th.
Just after 10pm, Chris Davis, 29, was sitting in his garage smoking a cigarette with the door open when a man in a ski mask, and an accomplice, approached demanding his wallet. When Davis refused, a fight ensued and Davis was shot nine times at point-blank range.
Janie, Chris' mother, heard what she thought were fireworks and ran outside to find her son lying in the driveway. Still conscious, Davis told her he had been shot and to call 9-1-1. The incident happened 22500 block of Williamchase Drive in Katy, TX. (map it)
Davis was life flighted to Memorial Hermann Hospital where doctors removed his spleen and one of his kidneys. Before reaching the hospital, Chris was given two pints of blood. He received 11 total pints and had emergency surgery before he was in stable condition.
So far Davis has had three surgeries and will need more to rebuild a shattered femur and a shattered arm. Chris is still in ICU and will likely be recovering in the hospital for months to come.
A YouCaring fund has been set up to help Davis in the months to come. So far $4,783 has been raised. He supports three small children and he's not able to return to his job as a diesel mechanic right now. Chris does not have short term disability.
Although there is a video of the event, the quality is not clear.
If you have any information regarding this case, please call the Harris County Sheriff's Office.
