A 17-year-old boy died just over a week after being shot in the eyes by an eight-year-old family friend with a BB gun.

Ivan Johnson clung to hospital life since being shot in the eyes on February 1.

He was sitting in the passenger seat of a family friend’s car in the parking lot of a Bank of America in Tampa, Florida, when the family friend got out of the vehicle to go to the bank branch.

The friend’s young son was sitting in the back seat.

He somehow gained access to the gun and accidentally shot Ivan while his father was inside the bank.

The police is investigating the case.

It is not exactly clear what his injuries were.

The teen’s grieving family says he was a “good child” who was an enthusiastic member of the Church.

He loved music and was planning to open a landscape architecture company when he finished high school, they said.

“Ivan was a good child, he stayed out of trouble.

“He didn’t put himself in dangerous situations. He didn’t run through town and play with BB guns and do stupid things like that.

“It was just very unexpected for the family,” one of his relatives said Bay News 9.
