Mason survived after a bullet pierced his right arm and shoulder before going out his back. Doctors aren't sure yet how many more surgeries John Mason will need to repair joint and nerve damage.

Cherokee County Sheriff's Office deputies say the shooter could face charges of reckless use of a weapon or assault and battery with a deadly weapon.
