Flagstaff girl returns home after being wounded in Phoenix drive-by shooting

A 10-year-old girl has come home to Flagstaff days after she was wounded in a drive-by shooting in Phoenix.

Officials say the girl and 15-year-old Perez Grado were shot on the evening of February 3 near 1st Avenue and Thomas Road while visiting family friends.

The girl sustained multiple injuries from the shooting, including a multiple fractured vertebra and Grado died.

Her family says she has since returned to Flagstaff where she continues to recover.

A GoFundMe to assist with her medical expenses has raised nearly $10,000 as of Thursday.
