LAS VEGAS (WCSC/KVVU) -

A former Wando High School student is fighting for his life after being shot ten times. Jeremy Miller, 18, was shot in Las Vegas last Thursday. 

According to his father, Miller lived in the Lowcountry for the past five years, but now lives in Las Vegas.

Miller's father says one of the bullets is in his son's spine.

Miller is paralyzed from the waist down and still in a medically-induced coma, but he is expected to survive.

Las Vegas police said the incident started when the victims - Troy Price, Jeremy Miller and Destiny Garcia - were ejected from the Hard Rock Café on Las Vegas Boulevard sometime before midnight.

Price and 18-year-old Devante Jeffers had attended Sierra Vista High School together in 2012 and Price blamed Jeffers for getting him fired from a Grimaldi's Pizzeria restaurant.

After the victims left the restaurant, they got into some sort of altercation with suspect Jeffers and a second suspect, only identified as "Lee" in the arrest report but subsequently identified as Ariya Manoi.

The victims then drove to the Showcase Mall parking garage, Miller and Price telling Garcia they were going to "beat up Jeffers" and asking if there was anything hard in the car they could use for a weapon.

When the victims exited an elevator on the sixth floor of the parking garage, Jeffers and Manoi appeared, Manoi producing a black gun and firing at least nine rounds at Miller and Price.

Jeffers was located a short time later and charged with attempted murder with a deadly weapon and battery with a deadly weapon.

Manoi remains on the loose.
