Fearful, she ushered her children home. ‘I started getting nervous,’ she recounted.

But as she went inside, she felt her body was on fire. She did not notice she had been shot in the stomach until a neighbor pointed out the blood oozing onto her white dress.

‘I didn’t know I’d been hit,’ Evers said after the incident. ‘I just felt a little tingling.’

Knowing that an ambulance would take too long to arrive in the midst of the violence, a friend drove her to St. Francis Medical Center, where an emergency caesarian section saved her baby.

Elvira had been asleep for a week when she awoke and immediately began to cry. ‘I was just like, oh my God, my baby,’ she said, certain her daughter had not survived.

But baby Jessica, now 19, did in fact, survive. Read the rest of the Daily Mail article to learn how Jessica is doing now.
