15-year old Orlando girl still in coma after hit by stray bullet in head

Danielle Sampson, age 15
15-year old Danielle Sampson was returning home from church in July when shots rang out, aimed at a car nearby.  One of those shots hit Danielle in the head.

Danielle has been in a coma ever since, and her family can no longer afford to keep her in the hospital.  She is now returning home.  She has to be turned every 15 minutes or will get bed sores. 

One of the shooters, 19-year old Tyrone Mosby, has been arrested for the shooting.

From an article:

The family of an Orange County teenager who was shot in the head called for more arrests in the case Tuesday. 
Danielle Sampson, 15, was hospitalized in July and remains in a coma at Arnold Palmer Hospital.  Orange County investigators have said the teen was shot on her way home from church when a gunman opened fire on another car that Sampson was not riding in. 
The Caribbean Passport News Magazine, Greater Orlando CARES and other community leaders plan to join Sampson's family Tuesday to hold an event  called "Wake Up Everybody" in the teen's honor. 
The family says while 19-year-old Tyrone Mosby has been arrested, others involved in the shooting are still on the loose.

Bullets don't know when to stop.
