The 7-year-old girl shot while trick-or-treating Halloween night in Chicago’s Little Village neighborhood has been released from the hospital, according to a family friend.

Giselle Zamago was shot by a teenage gang member who prosecutors said intended to hit a member of a rival gang, and instead hit the young girl who was wearing a Minnie Mouse costume.

“She’s a fighter, and is now on a road to recovery,” he added. “This is a huge step! Still a long road ahead.”
