A GoFundMe page has been set up to help a Lafayette man who was wounded in the deadly mall shooting in Texas.

Irvin Walker II was one of the first people shot on Saturday; he was driving past the shooter to park his car, the GoFundMe page says.

Walker was shot twice in the chest and once in his right shoulder. He underwent surgery Monday and is in stable condition according to the post.

Eight people were killed by the gunman, who also died. Walker is one of six victims hospitalized.
