Dulono’s owner Jared Gruett said Gryskiewicz was returning from a final delivery around 3:30 a.m. when he was shot “in what appears to be an attempted robbery and/or car jacking.” The Star Tribune reported he was shot near 31st & Park.
Officers were alerted by a concerned passerby, Gruett said, and police discovered Gryskiewicz bleeding and unconscious in his car.
“Heroic and gifted surgeons repaired the hole in his heart and have given him the chance to fight for his life,” Gruett said in a web post.
In a social media update this week, Dulono’s said Gryskiewicz was able to breathe on his own and speak.
“He is not out of the woods yet but he appears to be on the right track,” Gruett said. “Andrew and his family are blown away and very thankful for the thoughts, prayers and generous donations. Thank you for your awesome display of humanity.”
