The 7-year-old girl, Gisele Zamaga, who was shot while trick-or-treating on Halloween night in Little Village, Chicago is improving day by day.
Gisele Zamaga’s father, Rigoberto Zamago, told the Chicago Sun-Times on Tuesday, Nov. 5, “she got up, sat down and even went to use the bathroom.”
“Thankfully, she’s not facing any big risks right now,” Zamago said. “Everything is going smoothly.”

“My little girl’s, getting better day by day,” he said.
Zamado, 35, works at a north suburban recycling plant, has been at his daughter’s bedside since the shooting on Halloween last week and hasn’t been back to work, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
“I asked for permission to take off until Gisselle was out of the hospital. Hopefully, I still have my job when she gets out. Either way, she comes first. Jobs come and go,” he said.
Hospital officials have not told Zamago yet when his daughter can leave the hospital.
Gisele was out with her family in the 3700 block of West 26th Street when hit in the neck by two stray bullets, officials said. She was in critical condition when she was taken to Stroger Hospital. A 32-year-old man who was identified by police as the intended target also was wounded.
