9-year-old left blind in 1 eye after shooting recovers, search for gunman continues

- Some encouraging news about a case previously seen on Detroit's Most Wanted.

Malik Cosey, Jr.  who was shot while sitting in a car with his family earlier this year is now out of the hospital. Police say he was the unintended target and was on his way to see a move with other children and his grandmother.

Nine-year-old Malik was permanently blinded in his right eye but his father tells us Malik is doing well and acting just like a normal kid. He's enjoying a trip to Disney World right now, thanks to the generosity of the Detroit Pistons.

But his shooter is still out there.

A grey Dodge Magnum with tinted windows  was seen leaving the area of Murray Hill near Outer Drive shortly after the shooting which happened on a Saturday afternoon, April 1.
