wpid-wpid-dodsisdiosd.jpgThe tragedy of gun violence hits us every single day, but lawmakers are unable to do a thing about it, at least that?s what they say. An 11-year old girl was hit in the neck by a stray bullet and may never be able to walk again as a result of her injuries. The incident took place Friday night when a man opened fired on two other men in New York.

Tayloni Mazyck, or ?Tutu? is currently in the New York Presbyterian Hospital after having the bullet surgically removed. Everything happened at 8:30 pm, when a 17-year old pulled out his gun. The little girl was waiting for her aunt outside the door of her apartment building at the time, along with her aunt and a 7-month old baby.

?I had her with me since she was a baby,? her aunt said. ?She was just a joy to be around, full of life and energy. Now she is never going to be the same.?

So far, doctors say that the girl has no feeling in either of her legs. She is awake and responsive, but it?s touch-and-go at the moment.

?She can?t move her legs, and her arms just tingle and hurt when you touch them,? said her father, Robert Mazyck.

?But she is in good spirits. She is awake, she is alive, and she knows what is happening around her.?

The girl was set to graduate from PS 44 this month. Her older brother says that she?s been talking about graduation for weeks.

Daiquan Mazyck, her 15-year old brother, says that she loved school and was excited.

?She was always asking me, everyday, if I was going to come to her graduation,? he said. ?And I said I would be there even if I had to skip school.?

The suspect in the shooting is 17-year old Kane Cooper, who lives less than a block away. Cooper was charged with attempted murder, assault, criminal use of a firearm and reckless endangerment.
