Today marks one week since the news broke Mobile City Councilman CJ Small was shot in the face during a robbery attempt in South Africa. Small responded last night to a Facebook message I sent him Monday. He said he’s doing okay and in his words, “hanging low until he returns home.”
Small said he’s still in the hospital and doesn’t have a timetable on when he’ll be able to get back to the gulf coast. The district three councilman was in South Africa for an annual funeral directors conference when the small bus he was riding in was ambushed by armed robbers. Small was shot in the cheek and has been recovering ever since.
