LOUISVILLE, Ky. (FOX 56/WKYT) – A prominent Louisville peace advocate is fundraising for a young Lexington boy blinded in a shooting last year.

Christopher 2X met with Malakai Roberts and his mother, Cacy, over the weekend.

Malakai, now six-years-old, was blinded days before Christmas in 2020. Two teens are facing charges for shooting into the home.

2X is promoting a fundraiser to help support Malakai’s education. His mother says he is spending time at Kentucky School for the Blind.
