As we previously reported, little Anderson was one of 25 people injured at the weekend when a man hijacked a mail truck and went on a shooting spree in West Texas. The suspect was eventually shot dead by police after a stand-off outside a cinema, but not before killing seven people.
Anderson was hit by flying shrapnel that injured her chest, lip and teeth, but Ector Country Sheriff Mike Griffis said in a statement on Monday that she is now at home and on the mend.

Parents Kelby and Garret Davis said in a statement emailed to CNN: “We hurt so badly for the families whose loved ones didn’t survive this tragedy.
“We are thankful for our beautiful baby girl and look forward to reuniting her at home with her twin brother soon.”
