MANATEE -- The 4-year-old boy was lying down to take a nap with his mother just before noon on July 27, 2013.
Never did either of them imagine that a bullet meant for someone else would come through the boy's bedroom window and hit him in the head as two cars shot at one another while passing near the home.
For Davien Martinez, now 5, and his mother, Diana Lopez, this is the reality they have lived with for a year.
The shooting left Davien blind in one eye, and he now suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder,an impulse disorder, ADHD and anxiety.
Never miss a local story.
While investigators were able to determine persons of interest in the shooting, the case has been listed as inactive due to a lack of cooperation. No arrests were ever made.
Life has changed drastically, and the boy and his mother no longer call the house in the 2600 block of 36th Avenue West their home.
Davien can no longer play contact sports, his mother said. Riding his bike always requires a helmet. Roller skating, which he once loved, is too much of a risk.
He is excelling in school, Lopez said. Davien's I.Q. is above average. However, mentally, it's different, she said.
"Sometimes he just starts crying, and he can't tell why," Lopez said. "I'll tell him to stop, and he's like, 'I can't stop crying.' "
While Lopez has been told there is limited research on severe brain injuries in children such as Davien, doctors are hopeful he will overcome this with time.
"Getting therapy early on is important so that he can deal with this better," Lopez said.
She remains frustrated, however, because those responsible for shooting her son have not been brought to justice.
"I contacted the FBI because I still felt like there is still things that can be done and could have been done," Lopez said. "But the FBI couldn't get involved."
Manatee County Sheriff's Office Detective Darryl Davis still has much of the file sitting on the corner of his desk.
"At the end of the day, it was a child that was shot," Davis said. "I'm sure his mom wants justice, and we want justice as well." Some of the biggest challenges in the case, according to Davis, are that no witnesses ever came forward and investigators were never able to speak with the persons of interest.
In the weeks following the shooting, half-brothers Davian Evans-Dufrene and Horatio Papillion were named persons of interest.
Evans-Dufrene was found at Campbellsville University in Kentucky, where he was on the football team, but investigators were never able to establish contact with him.
Papillion went to the sheriff's office accompanied by a lawyer to ask if there was a warrant for his arrest and said he was upset his brother had been named a person of interest. He refused to give detectives a statement.
"The sad part is that the person who was the intended target would not cooperate with us," Davis said.
Without any new leads in months, the case's status is now inactive.
"We have a good idea who it is," Davis said. "If I get any leads I will run with them 'til the end."
In honor of the anniversary, Lopez is hosting a charity event at Tarpon Pointe Grill & Tiki Bar for the Ronald McDonald House in St. Petersburg, which helped her when Davien was hospitalized at All Children's Hospital.
The event will be begin at 1 p.m., and donations of household items are requested. There will be live entertainment, bounce houses and raffles.
