Girl recovering from shooting visits classmates

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.
