A teenager from Aurora who was shot last week in Lawrence County is still in the hospital recovering from his injuries according to Lawrence County Prosecutor Bob George.

The Lawrence County sheriff's department was dispatched to St. John's hospital in Aurora after 18 year-old David Cummings arrived at the health care facility with a gunshot wound to the abdomen.

Cummings, was allegedly shot at the home of a 17 year-old friend on Farm Road 2210 on April 15, 2009.

Cummings was airlifted in critical condition to St. John's in Springfield where he underwent surgery.

A male juvenile was taken into custody following the shooting and released.

Lawrence says, "investigators are still gathering evidence and updating the status of Mr. Cummings," adding, "we hope to have all the reports back and charges filed within the next couple of weeks."
