A 14-year old boy, who authorities said was shot several times on August 18, 2014, in Franklin County, was out of intensive care and slowly improving, according to family members of David Lacey.

Lacey's sister told ABC 36 News on Thursday that her brother was able to take short walks in the hospital.

Lacy's aunt told the State-Journal that Lacy had surgery on his legs and stomach after being airlifted to UK Hospital.

The Franklin County Sheriff said Samuel Isaacs, 55, shot Lacy at the Ducker Mobile Home Park and then ran off.

Investigators said Isaacs was found at a nearby golf course, still armed with a handgun, which led to a four-and-a-half hour standoff with law enforcement officials.

Isaacs eventually was taken into custody.

The Franklin County Sheriff said Isaacs believed Lacy and his granddaughter "snuck out" one night.

Lacy's family set up an account for donations from the public to help with medical and living expenses, according to a report in the State-Journal.

The published report said donations could be dropped off at any Farmers Bank branch or at the McNamara & Jones Law Office in Frankfort.
