A young mother is now praising God after her 11-month-old daughter survived being shot along with five others after a fight broke out between teenagers at a church carnival in Birmingham, Alabama.

Danetris Caves told WVTM 13 that she was celebrating her daughter Karleigh’s first Easter by attending the spring carnival hosted by the Cathedral of the Cross Church of God when gunfire erupted in the crowd of about 900 people.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office says a group of teens at the carnival being held in the church’s parking lot began arguing and then fighting. During the fight, one of the teens pulled a gun and began firing as he ran away.

Caves said a bullet struck her young daughter a few feet from where she was standing at the time but no one realized her daughter had been shot.

“They really didn’t know she was shot or grazed or whatever, but they know a bullet came her way where her stroller was and the stroller was flipped over,” said Caves.

Once they realized Karleigh had been shot in the foot she was rushed to a local hospital where the bullet was removed without surgery.

“It is our first time coming out to a fair. You know, her first Easter, first birthday all in just two weeks and this happens? Just keep praising God because He’s the reason that she’s still here,” Caves told WVTM.
