“It’s sad. I heard the shots from my porch and walked up here to see what’s going on and they said that’s what’s going on. A 7-year-old got shot. Bullets don’t have no targets or names on them and it’s so sad but I’m glad she’s okay though. My prayer are with her and her family,” North Avondale resident Donico Smith said.
