Hollins’ mother told CBS News on Nov. 15 that her son is in critical condition and can’t speak. However, he asked about his teammates in a handwritten note.

“HE CAN’T TALK, BUT HE HAS WRITTEN D’SEAN’S NAME,” SHE SAID. “HE HAS WRITTEN DEVIN’S NAME. AND THEN I BELIEVE IT WAS AN L — I DON’T KNOW WHAT HE WAS WRITING AT THE BOTTOM, BUT HE WAS TAKING THE MARKER AND BEATING ON IT BECAUSE HE WANTS TO KNOW.”

She added that Hollins had gotten off the bus safely but returned to help his friends.

“What I’m hearing is Mike made it off the bus, but went back to help his friends and was shot,” Brenda said of the information that came to her second hand. “So, that’s my baby. I could absolutely see him doing that.”

She said her son was shot in the back and the bullet exited through his stomach.

“He’s so kindhearted. When he loves you, he loves you,” said Brenda. “He strives. He is a fighter.”
