“Miah got some blood and put it on herself so she could pretend she was dead,” said Rivera. “It’s too much for me to play that scene over and over again, but that’s what my sister-in-law said is that she saw her friend full of blood and she got blood and put it on herself.”
Miah was injured but taken to the hospital and has been released.
“My brother said she had bullet fragments in her back,” said Rivera.
Rivera, a mother of three, said the family is rallying around Miah to help her recover physically, emotionally and spiritually.
