Zachary Fernandez's hometown held a bake sale fundraiser Tuesday.
Friends and family gathered to raise money for the boy who was caught in the middle of a drug deal turned violent, and was shot in the head.
He's described as playful, strong and always smiling, and the community is happy to help in any way they can.
All of the money raised will go toward helping with medical bills for Zachary and school supplies for his little brother.
The 8-year-old is staying with family through CPS while his mother is in the hospital with Zachary.
