10-year-old shot several times released from hospital
LITTLE ROCK (KATV) —
10 year old Tiffany Rawls was released from Children's Hospital on Wednesday after being shot several times in front of her home Monday night. Rawls still remembers that night vividly.
"They started cutting me and they started hemming the needles and stuff, I was yelling and stuff. Because then I started feeling it a little bit. Feeling pain," Rawls said.
Audrey Jones, Tiffany's mother, said she is more at ease now that Tiffany is home but is anticipating a long recovery process.
"She's got a bike that she loves to ride everyday but it will be a while before she rides a bike. It's a long process," said Jones.
Captain Terry Hastings said investigators need the communities help to solve the crime.
"This little 10 year old girl was in the front yard, got shot that just shouldn't happen," Hastings said. "We are asking for the communities help so we can identify who these individuals are...we think it was a random incident that she got shot. But we believe they were shooting for a particular reason and for why? That's what we're looking for."
