After it was revealed that the Holcombe family lost nine of its members during Sunday's horrific shooting at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, more details have come out about another family deeply impacted by the tragedy.

Like the Holcombes, the Wards are also dealing with the unimaginable results from the traumatic event, with 5-year-old Ryland Ward clinging to life in a Texas hospital after he was shot four or five times in his arm, groin and stomach.

A relative named Heather Bradley, who set up a GoFundMe for Ryland and his family, said the little boy was shot "once in the elbow, twice in the stomach and twice in the leg" when gunman Devin Kelley entered and killed 26 parishioners.
