15 year old Florida girl shot and injured on Memorial Day

This last Memorial Day, a 15 year old Florida girl was shot and injured by 2 teen-aged boys:
A 15-year-old girl was expected to survive after being shot in the chest in Pompano Beach and Broward Sheriff's detectives were talking to two teenage boys about the shooting, late Monday.
The victim was identified as Jalisica Williams by cousin Tessia Johnson, 18, also of Pompano Beach.
"I heard that she got shot by some boy and she ran all the way down to my auntie's house," Johnson said.
According to sheriff's spokeswoman Dani Moschella: The victim was walking near 1600 NW 11th Circle with relative Shantoria Williams, 14, and two 15-year-old boys they knew. At 5:49 p.m., one of the boys pulled out a gun and shot Jalisica Williams. The two girls then walked west along Northwest 12th Drive to a relative's home about two blocks away.
"She's very, very lucky at this point," Moschella said. "She was shot and it appears that she is going to be OK."
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
