Maybe, maybe not; an airgun I assume? In .177 caliber he will probably live for a few days and die, .22 should have taken him out then and there. Some squirrels are absolute monsters, surviving RWS .22 hits to the brain and being found after being shot againyears later, no one can really say whether he will or will not die.
