A 2-month-old Fayetteville boy, who was shot during an apparent murder-suicide last week, is doing well at the hospital.

Family members have shared new photos of baby King. He is off a ventilator and feeding tube and is eating on his own.

The infant was shot in the chest last Wednesday.

Authorities said there was some sort of argument between Parker and McNeill before the shooting.

King was not McNeill's child, but the couple had two other children, ages 8 and 9.

Funeral services for Parker are set for Tuesday at 1 p.m. at the Colvin Home Chapel in Fayetteville.
