Father of 7-year-old injured in Halloween shooting says she’s ‘getting better day by day’
CHICAGO — The condition of the 7-year-old girl who was shot while trick-or-treating on Halloween night is improving.
Gisele Zamaga was injured during a shooting in the Little Village neighborhood on Oct. 31. She was transported to a hospital in critical condition.
According to a hospital spokesperson, Gisele’s condition was upgraded to fair, and she is resting and watching her favorite TV shows.
The girl’s father shared a photo with WGN Tuesday, showing Gisele alert, sitting up and coloring.
“My little girl, getting better day by day,” her father told WGN.
Prosecutors said the bullets were intended for a rival gang member, and a 15-year-old suspect has been charged with two counts of attempted first degree murder. He has not been identified because he is a juvenile and remains in custody.
