Some members of the Sutherland Springs community welcomed Ryland home as he passed through town on the fire truck.
Pictures show him grinning widely as a slew of firefighters and law enforcement officers greeted him at University Hospital, where he has spent the last two months being treated for five bullet wounds.
Stockdale Assistant Fire Chief Rusty Duncan was a first responder that morning, and began walking through the pews, checking those on the ground for pulses.
Ryland was rushed to the hospital and soon the young boy's mother reached out to Duncan, the firefighter said.
Brennan: Allison Janney misguided in defense of Tonya Harding
What we have in " I, Tonya " is not a standard sports movie but the crazed crossbreed child of "Slap Shot" and "Goodfellas". In the film, Harding alleges that her mother once threw a steak knife at her that hit her forearm.

Say Hello to Google Pay; brought Android Pay and Google Wallet together
Basically, the same way you pay for things now will continue, except it'll all be called Google Pay. When you think about it, that wasn't a very versatile brand for mobile payments.
Duncan said that as of this week, Ryland was walking again, with assistance. "Unfortunately, his wife and two girls were actually gone". "People at the hospital were nice and everything, but he turned 6 years old and had Christmas in there, and he just wanted to get out and get back to being kid", Earl McMahan, Ward's great-uncle, told UPI. Wilson County Fire Marshal Edwin Baker said he will be one happy little boy. "And I told his dad, 'No, he's not dead, he's still alive'". "He was having a blast".
"He deserves the outpouring of love that will be be shown to him", Baker said.
Some along the route shed tears of joy and/or cheered as they saw Ward going by in the fire truck. Ward isn't just any 6-year-old, and it wasn't just any trip home.
