A CBS 47 exclusive...
A graphic look at the aftermath of gang violence.
Lemor Abrams speaks with an eight-year old girl - just back home from the hospital - after surviving a gang drive -by shooting.
Paul Cha pointed to stitches on his 8-year old daughter's stomach.
Doctors performed emergency surgery to remove a bullet.
He wanted us to see the physical and mental anguish caused by gang violence...
A gunman sprayed his home with bullets at four in the morning two weeks ago.
Ahlia just returned from the hospital...so she didn't say much.
She watched TV and colored on the same living room couch she slept on when bullets flew through the window.
“Yah... a lot of bullets fly over here...one hit the wall over there too…the one came through the stereo and hit my daughter,” he said.
A single bullet shot through the stereo, hitting Ahlia.
Police believe it was meant for her brother, a former gang member.
Her other brother--not the target--slept in the living room next to her when she was hit.
“All I got to say is I just hope you guys find those people and I want to see them...how they look,” said Chris Cha.
For now dad has a message the shooter:
“We are [the] same people... same blood. So we have to help each other...don't try to be enemies,” he said.
Ahlia also wants peace.
She'll be sleeping in her bedroom from now on... not the couch.
