Gregory's grandmother, Ada Gregory, and stepmother, Daysha Mitchell, said he was hanging out with friends on Beauty Avenue and that they believe he is the victim of a random act.
"I don’t know why somebody would do something like this to a 13-year-old,” Mitchell said.
Ada Gregory said her grandson's friends, frightened by the shooting, put him in the car and were driving when they realized how serious his injury was and called police.
"The guys that were with him, they were young fellows themselves, and we were told those guys did try to help him,” she said.
Police did not release any information about suspects or the investigation.
