India was shot as two cars carried out a high-speed chase on Charest street near Eight Mile Road in northeast Detroit.
India was struck in the shoulder and chest and is restricted to a wheelchair.
She was 7-years old at the time and two years of recovery have not diminished her childlike sweetness.READ MORE: Fourth Stimulus Check: Will You See Another Relief Payment Soon?
“Enjoy every day,” India tells WWJ’s Jon Hewett.
“She didn’t deserve this but she has great spirits, and all she really wants is an apology from this person and that’s her spirit of it,” says India’s aunt Chante Lewis.
The people involved were never caught.
