CHICAGO (CBS) — There are new details about the case of NyAndra Dyer.
She is the 11-year-old girl who was shot in the face at a gas station, hit by a bullet meant for someone else.
CBS 2’s Suzanne Le Mignot reports from Comer Children’s Hospital where she spoke to the family.
Sources said the child had no heartbeat when paramedics arrived at the scene. They had to resuscitate her. She was brought here in very critical condition.
NyAndra Dyer was sitting in a car with her family at this West Pullman gas station, when she was shot in the face last night. Police said the 11-year-old, was not the intended target of the shooting.
Police said as a 19-year-old man was leaving the gas station store, two men went up to him.
As he tried to go back into the store, one of the men pulled out a gun and shot the teen, twice in his pelvic area and once in his left knee. Sources said the teen then returned fire, with an assault weapon style rifle.
Police recovered a handgun near the scene, along with 16 shell casings.
After he was shot, sources say the teen got back into his vehicle and drove to his house, where he called for an ambulance.
There is $20,000 reward for information on the person who shot Dyer. There’s a 24-hour National Call Center number 1-800-883-5587 1-800-U-TELL-US.
