RadioOnFire.com - A foster mother said a 7-year-old girl is fighting to live after someone shot her in the head while watching a movie.
She told Channel 2's Michael Seiden she doesn't know why the shooter picked her home.
“How could someone do this? Just drive by and shoot someone’s house like that?” the foster parent, who did not want to be identified, said.
“Do you fear for your own life now?” Seiden asked.
“Oh yeah. I’m not even sure I want to go back and this is somewhere that I lived for at least over 15 years,” she responded.
The woman is staying with family and friends because, right now, DeKalb county police are searching for a shooter who sprayed bullets all over her Ellenwood home late Friday night.
“There was about 26 holes all over the place,” the woman said.
One of those bullets struck a 7-year-old girl in the back of the head. It happened while the child was sitting on the couch watching a movie inside her new foster home on Satellite Boulevard.
“The last thing I heard is she’s critical and she hasn’t regained consciousness yet,” the woman said.
