Dexter Hughley, the Main Street Wendy's Manager and well-known Apopka resident that was shot in his apartment on November 2nd, is now in stable condition at a local hospital according to a spokesperson for the Hughley family. This is an upgrade from critical condition Hughley was listed earlier this month.
Lisa Jennings, Hughley's sister, told The Apopka Voice her family's great news.
"Dexter is on the mend," she said. "It will be slow going, but he is stable and is able to communicate a little."
According to Jennings, Hughley was shot in the chest and neck and was unable to communicate for several days when he was in critical condition.
On November 2nd, Hughley, 46, was shot multiple times at his Orange North apartment on West Orange Blossom Trail. His car was found near the corner of Fifth Street and Hawthorne Avenue in Apopka intentionally set on fire that same evening by officers of the Apopka Police Department.
According to the APD, the investigation is still ongoing.
The Hughley family has started a gofundme.com page that is being facilitated by Jennings. Anyone with information is urged to call Crimeline at 800-423-TIPS, or the Apopka Police Department. A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered.
