The little girl, whose name is Phoenix, will now need emergency surgery and likely physical therapy, according to the fundraiser.

The child’s father, Jon Lindsey, says the bullet grazed her right leg and went through her left leg.

“She’s going to have a long road to recovery and needs lots of prayers,” Lindsey says. "There's an investigation going on. I don't know if they've made progress yet, I should be hearing from a detective probably at some time today or tomorrow.”

Anyone with more information on the shooting is being asked to call HPD at 270-831-1295, or the Henderson Crime Stoppers at 270-831-1111.

It was another cool, though overall pleasant day across the Tri-State - after only seeing temperatures dive as low as 22° early this morning, peak temperatures ended up climbing a few degrees higher than Thursday's; that being said, Evansville’s high temperature of 27° Was still 15° below average for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, temperatures will gradually fall for 23° around dinner time back down to 19° by10 PM. A weak northerly wind flow most of the night paired with our crystal clear skies will cause temperatures to of fall back down into the mid to low teens once again - Evansville's anticipated low temperature of 12° will mark or coolest since the morning of January 7th.
