According to a police report and a Facebook account, someone in the car fired a shot from a .40-caliber pistol, hitting him in the back near the right shoulder blade.
Da Cruz is now paralyzed, and police are looking for the person who shot him. They released the above photos of three men they want brought in for questioning.
