NORFOLK, Va. - A 7-year old girl is recovering after someone shot her last night on Nicholson Street.

Janayah Jones

Janayah Jones was outside riding her bike when she was caught in gunfire on Wednesday night at around 9 pm, her dad said. A 38-year old man was also hit, but is also expected to be okay, according to police.

"I just heard gunshots so I ran outside to find my kids and I heard my daughter screaming," Tony Jones said. "It really made me angry I wanted to do something, but I can't. I'm just going to let God deal with it and help my daughter."

Medics took Janayah to the hospital, but her dad said she is now at home recovering.
