Nikko Nathan, 19, is out of intensive care at the Northwest Texas Hospital in Amarillo, said his uncle George Aragon on Friday.
Nathan was shot Monday night and transported to Amarillo.

The gunshot wound entered his left buttocks and ricocheted into his colon, his uncle said.
“He’s been up on a walker,” Aragon said.

As of Friday police had not made an arrest in the shooting, said Tucumcari Police Chief Roger Hatcher.

Thirteen gunshots were fired during the incident, including the one that hit Nathan, across south First Street from Hines Avenue, Hatcher said.
