A family friend told KHOU that Arianna underwent emergency surgery following the hospital and is now recovering. The individual also told the outlet that she’s in a stable condition and walked for the first time since the shooting on Tuesday (Jan. 4).
As reported by REVOLT, the little girl was asleep in her bed when at least one person fired several shots into her home, where four adults and another child were also asleep. The shooting occurred just before 3 a.m. local time at an apartment complex on the 3300 block of Yellowstone Boulevard.
“I am aware and have concerns regarding the delayed response time in this incident and have initiated an Internal Affairs investigation,” he continued. “I ask the city to continue to pray for the child’s full recovery and assist in providing information that would lead to the arrest of the suspect or suspects responsible.”
The child’s father, Derrick Delane, said her mother rushed her to the hospital after the shooting.
Thankfully, Derrick said his daughter is “healing very fast.”
“The last time I checked on her she was breathing on her own. She was doing really great,” he added.
