The family of an 11-year-old girl who was shot in the face at a West Pullman gas station Monday night is searching for the shooter(s) responsible. The incentive for information about the case has been raised from $10,000 to $20,000.

Around 11 p.m., Monday, Ny-Andrea Dyer was seated in a car's back seat parked at a gas station on west 127th Street when the shooting started. According to police, a 19-year-old man was leaving the gas station when another man fired shots in his direction. The police added the first gunman targeted Dyer in the chest.

Dyer's mother told ABC7 Chicago the family had stopped at the gas station to get some food when two men in the parking lot began firing at each other.

She estimated that there were about seven or eight shots between them. The bullet struck her daughter's when one of the unnamed suspects didn't know where he was aiming. The bullet stuck in her throat, causing her mother to call 9-1-1 for assistance.

During the same shootout, another 19-year-old man was shot in the groin. But he is well. The other gunman has fled.

Respondents rushed Ny-Andrea to Comer Children's Hospital. She remains in critical condition as of Tuesday evening. Doctors also told the girl's family that she could be disabled for the rest of her life if she survives.

Ny-Andrea's mother told WGN that the next three days are vital in her daughter's struggle for life. The 11-year-brain old's is bloated, and doctors are trying to minimize it. She added that Ny'Andrea would not come home until the swelling subsides.

"I just pray that he will work a miracle, and I just want justice for my baby because she did not deserve any of this," her mother said.

A pistol was located about a mile away from the attack, according to police. No one is being taken in detention. The explanation for the shooting remains uncertain.

The girl does not appear to have been the intended target, too, according to police. The city's detectives are investigating the incident.

"To the shooter, it might not be long before you are apprehended," said community activist Andrew Holmes.
