Four-year-old Na’vaun Jackson accidentally shot himself a month ago after finding a gun under the pillow of his mother Brijjanna Price’s ex-boyfriend. Miraculously, the boy has finally woke up after the incident and he is said to be making recovery. 


According to the young boy’s family, he is making a “miracle” recovery after the devastating incident that him in critical condition on life support. The doctors had to remove a part of his skull and brain since the bullet went through his forehead between his eyes. 


For a child who was likely to be brain dead or never be able to walk again, one has to agree that Na’vaun’s recovery was nothing short of a miracle. 

Ramon Rice, the five-year-old’s grandfather, shared in his GoFundMe page that Na’vaun’s condition had stabilized and he has been discharged from ICU. The boy is currently going through physical therapy. 


“Na'vaun 'still has a long road ahead. Thank you all for your love and support please continue to pray,” he wrote.

In one of the videos posted on his Facebook account, the child smiles while being tickled. It is evident that he has made some recovery but he still has a long way to go. Na’vaun has yet to be able to speak, although he can sit up on a wheelchair and move his head.


Terrace Wilson, Brijjanna’s ex, is set to face criminal charges after the incident. Na’vaun’s father, Nathan Jackson, has not been granted a release from the prison to visit his son.

According to a source, Wilson was charged with one count each of child abuse, first-degree criminal firearm storage, and possession of a firearm by a felon. Meanwhile, Nathan has been seeing his son via. Skype.

However, Na'vaun is not the first one to fall victim of guns in the family. His father Nathan lost three of his siblings to gun violence. Each one of them was shot and killed in different places and time.

We hope little Na'vaun makes a speedy recovery.
