Fundraiser today and tonight at Steamers Bar and Grill for South Tahoe victim shot in the face

South Lake Tahoe resident Eric Domingo continues to battle fever and infection in Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno after being shot in the face earlier this month.

Doctors may also insert a feeding tube into his stomach as early as Thursday because Domingo is not receiving enough nutrition through a nasal feeding tube, according to Eric’s mother, Judy Domingo.

“He’s so weak from not eating,” Domingo said on Tuesday.

The former South Tahoe High School football player has shown marginal signs of improvement.

Doctors now list Domingo as in stable condition and Judy Domingo described her son’s ability to talk as “somewhat better.”

“It’s just going to be a long haul for him,” Domingo said.

Steamers in South Lake Tahoe is hosting a fundraiser to help pay for the Domingo family’s medical costs. The fundraiser includes $2 tacos all day. Donations may also be made at any El Dorado Savings Bank location.

The number of the savings account is 18000697, family members said.

Steamers Bar and Grill is located at 2236 Lake Tahoe Blvd. across the street from Kings Trading Post shopping center. It is open from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. The phone number is (530) 541-8818.
