LATEST: The Clark County coroner identified the suspect killed as 34-year-old Lewis William Borland of Las Vegas. His cause of death is pending.

Kiana Wong shares a child with Borland.

She says although his car was involved in the shooting, he was not.

"It's not his demeanor, I've known Lewis for 22 years," she said. "He's not a confrontation kind of guy."

However, Michael Ashbaugh said Borland had attacked him a week before. He added that the suspect was his ex-girlfriend's new boyfriend and believes his ex is behind the attack.

But instead of focusing on the past, Ashbaugh is determined to fight.

"I just want to get all my physical abilities back, be able to walk again," he said.

UPDATE: The suspect who died fleeing police on Thursday was involved in a shooting that led to Michael Ashbaugh being shot in the head, according to Ashbaugh's relatives. 

They say the 29-year-old is likely paralyzed.  

"I am thinking about that he might never walk again," said Ashbaugh's grandmother. "I'm hopeful this won't happen but the doctor can't give me an answer."

Police have not confirmed details of the shooting on Sept. 22 at the Miracle Mile Trailer Park off Boulder Highway. 

Ashbaugh's loved ones say the suspect and another man approached the victim as he sat in his car. That's when up to six shots we're fired, according to relatives.

Ashbaugh was rushed to the hospital.  

Loved ones say they're praying that the bright, young, active man will make a full recovery. A GoFundMe for Ashbaugh has been set up.

On Friday, 13 Action News spoke with the victim Michael. 

"Being immobile completely feels like ... it's just kind of nerve wracking," he said. 

The once active 29-year-old cannot move his legs.  

"I feel like I have not made enough progress today," he said, "I just wasted a day away sleeping in bed."

Ashbaugh was born and raised in Las Vegas.  He attended Centennial High School. 

"I just want to get all my physical abilities back," he said.

U.S. 95 completely reopened to traffic Thursday evening after the suspect was hit by a semi-truck.
