Murphy said doctors at Hospital Bernard Mevs Project Medishare performed two surgeries on Bompart before he was airlifted Thursday night to Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami.
Jackson officials did not immediately have any information about Bompart’s condition.
Bompart volunteered for Project Medishare after Haiti’s 2010 earthquake. Murphy said he was working for a separate project when he was shot.
