Radio host Rickey Smiley’s daughter was shot three times in Houston over the holiday weekend but is expected to recover.

The comedian said during the “Rickey Smiley Morning Show” Monday that his daughter, Aaryn Smiley, was driving to Whataburger on Sunday night to get food when she was shot at a traffic light.

“She’s fine. I’m just so angry right now,” he said on the show.

Houston police said the shooting happened around 8:45 p.m. on South Freeway. A woman and three men were injured, the department said in a press release without identifying any of the victims.
