A young girl is recovering in the hospital after a shooting that happened in Henderson, Kentucky on Monday.

According to the GoFundMe page created for the child, she was at the gas station with her mom in Henderson when a gunshot rang out, hitting her while she was in her car seat.

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.

Wednesday morning marked our coldest start to a day in nearly 3 weeks - morning low temperatures dove into the single digits for much of the Tri-State and our northerly winds routinely drove wind chill values well below zero throughout the Lower Ohio Valley. If there was any silver lining, our clear skies did allow temperatures to climb back into the mid 20s later in the day; though Evansville’s peak temperature of 25° remained 17° below average for this time of the year. The clear skies are expected to linger throughout the evening and much of the night ahead and will allow temperatures to fall back down into the mid to low teens early Thursday morning. We will fall to 14° in Evansville around daybreak Thursday.
