Uptown shooting victims

Fundraisers following Sunday’s Uptown shooting have garnered tens of thousands of dollars and reveal the extent of its impact on the victims and families.

Online fundraisers for some of the 11 victims are seeking donations for medical expenses, physical therapy and more.

A campaign for victim Taija Tyson was created by Tyson’s mother. Tyson is a single mother and the campaign is asking for help with medical bills and living expenses.

She ran for cover when she felt a burning sensation, and later realized "she had been struck three times, once in the arm and shot once in each leg . The bullets shattered her femur bone on her Left and right side she now has a metal rods in place of the femur bones."

The GoFundMe had raised around $1,500 of its $10,000 goal as of Tuesday morning. 

Another victim, DeeJay Hebert, is currently in the hospital with a knee injury and expects to make a full recovery, according to a GoFundMe set up by his mom. The campaign had raised around $7,500 of its $20,000 goal as for Tuesday morning to pay for Herbert’s medical expenses.

Herbert was supposed to start a new job Monday, making his insurance situation uncertain. Herbert also has a young daughter.

A campaign for Jayme Shaw would help pay for physical therapy and living expenses after she was "shot twice in the leg and foot," and was also grazed on the head.

According to the GoFundMe set up by Shaw’s friend, Shaw won’t be able to work to support her child. The campaign had raised almost $5,000 of its $10,000 goal as of Tuesday morning.

Another victim, identified as a father-of-two named Sammie in a GoFundMe campaign, is facing unexpected medical bills and physical therapy after being struck by a stray bullet. Set up by his friend, the campaign had raised just under $1,000 of its $10,000 goal as of Tuesday morning.
