MISSION - Nicholas Tijerina, one of the Harwell middle school shooting victims, is set to go into surgery for a second time on Thursday.
His mother says that his liver continues to leak fluids causing him to regurgitate and doctors decided to move the scheduled surgery from Friday to Thursday. It will be a dual surgery as doctor's will work to repair Nicholas' liver and also retrieve the bullet lodged in his back.
