Chrissy Berry, 6, points Thursday, Dec. 20, 2012, to the spot where a bullet flew into the family's apartment, striking her 2-year-old sister in the arm.
A 2-year-old girl was recovering in a Memphis, Tenn., hospital Thursday, a day after she was hit by a stray bullet that flew through the window of her home while she was watching cartoons.
The girl, Chrissiya Berry, was listed as stable at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital with a gunshot wound in her arm. She was initially listed in critical condition Wednesday.
"We was watching TV, and then I heard gunshots and one had come through the window and shot C.C.," Chrissiya's 6-year-old sister, Chrissy, told NBC station WMC of Memphis, using her little sister's nickname.
The bullet was one of several that flew as a fight broke out among several people Wednesday morning outside the Warren apartment complex on Clementine Road near Elvis Presley Boulevard in South Memphis, police said. At least one man was taken to Methodist North Hospital with a gunshot wound.
No arrests had been reported late Thursday.
The girls' grandfather, Henry McCracken, who watches the girls and their siblings while their mother is at work, said he heard five or six shots.
"Then I started yelling, 'Get on the floor! Get on the floor!' and they all started hollering and screaming and laying down," McCracken told WMC.
News reports over the last several years reveal the area to be crime-riddled, with shootings a frequent occurrence.
A 68-year-old man was stabbed to death nearby just last Friday, according to police reports.
In 2010, the Warren apartments survived issuance of a nuisance order that could have led to its shutdown after new management took over. Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich said Thursday that she still had serious concerns about the complex.
"My office will begin the process of looking into exactly what we can do to make sure residents at this apartment complex are safe," Weirich told WMC.
McCracken said that after this latest incident, he wants to get his family out.
"I damn sure want it to be shut down," he said.
For her part, Chrissy said she was scared to play in the neighborhood.
"I want to find another house," she said.
