Medical struggles continue for South Shore shooting victim

A South Shore man continued to fight for his life in a Reno hospital Thursday after reportedly being shot below his eye with a 9mm handgun Feb. 9.

“He’s doing better in some ways and worse in other ways,” said Judy Domingo, mother of shooting victim Eric Domingo. “He’s off the ventilator, but he’s had two strokes.”

Doctors are unsure what caused the strokes, which occurred Wednesday and Thursday, Judy Domingo said.

Eric Domingo, a 21-year-old South Tahoe High School graduate, is able to engage in “basic” communication, according to his mother.

Police said they were able to obtain more information about the shooting after an interview with Eric Domingo on Thursday.

“It appears to be accidental, but the investigation is ongoing,” said South Lake Tahoe Police Lt. Marty Hale.

A high school teammate of Domingo’s, 20-year-old Casey Curcie-Crummett of South Lake Tahoe, was arrested on suspicion of assault with a firearm after the shooting and has since been released.
