YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A Youngstown girl visited with classmates Friday just days after being released from the hospital where she was treated for a gunshot wound.
Williamson Elementary student Kathryn Carter was shot through the upper chest by a stray bullet earlier this month while sitting inside her home.
Friday, the 9-year-old stopped by her classroom to catch up with friends and teachers. She also received a special presentation from Youngstown Mayor John McNally.
While Kathryn is recovering successfully from her injury, her mother, Natasha Clark, has a message for the shooter.
“Turn yourself in because when you think about it, guilt is actually going to kill you in the long run,” said Clark.
No arrests have been made in the shooting.
Kathryn expects to return to school later this month.
