Shaq & Papa Johns donate home to Atlanta boy paralyzed by shooting


Shaq has donated a home to an Atlanta women’s 12-year-old son who was shot at a football game and paralyzed from the chest down.

Shaq says he’s not doing it by himself. Rob Lynch, the CEO of Papa John’s and Jeff Smith, the chairman of the board of Papa John’s also chipped in.The City of Atlanta Fire Department is providing her a budget for the year and Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms is also supporting this effort.

Isaiah was shot through the spine in August after a football scrimmage between two high schools. Sixteen-year-old Damean Spear also was wounded and treated for minor injuries. Isaiah’s mother, Allison Woods, has said relearning how to care for Isaiah meant she had to leave her job, adding financial stress to her emotional turmoil.

Atlanta Police arrested a 15-year-old boy in connection with the shooting incident on Wednesday.
