COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) — Friends of an Iowa mother and toddler who were shot multiple times are holding a fundraiser to help cover their medical costs.

The Daily Nonpareil reports (http://bit.ly/11pntYz ) that the fundraiser is set for Saturday at Regal Lanes in Council Bluffs. Organizers are hosting the event in honor of 23-year-old Heather Wilson and her 2-year-old son, Tyson, who are both still recovering from the February shooting.

Authorities have charged 31-year-old Ronald Farr with attempted murder, willful injury and going armed with intent.

The “Strike Back Against Violence” fundraiser will feature bowling, food, a raffle and a silent auction.
