The Texas Hill Country needs your help: Kerrville shooting suspects are still at large. Shots were fired by unknown assailants in Kerrville, Texas at the intersection of West Schreiner and Paschal Street at approximately 9:25 p.m. on Saturday, October 1, 2016.

On Saturday night, 9-1-1 received a frantic call for help from a man saying his 7-year-old daughter had been shot in the head.

First responders and police arrived at the scene at 9:30 p.m.

The little girl’s father said she had been shot after a heated argument occurred between him and passengers in another vehicle at the intersection. Several rounds had been fired into his car. At first, he didn’t know his daughter had been hit until he saw blood. That’s when he called 9-1-1 from his cell phone.

The 7-year-old girl was flown to the University Trauma Center. She remains in stable condition.

According to KSAT, the girl was identified by family members Sunday night as Mariah Gilkey. Gilkey’s mother, Isabel Gebara, spoke to KSAT Sunday evening about the shooting. She said Gilkey is recovering from surgery at the hospital. Gebara said she had just gotten off work when she heard the news. Her family thinks they know who was responsible for the shooting.

According to 94.3 REV-FM, the suspects are still at large, and the incident is under investigation. No further details are known at this time.
