( Avondale ) - 3-Year-Old L'Eah Johnson was shot in the buttocks early Tuesday morning. Her mother, 28-year-old Ebony McDavis, told police she had the girl with her when she was taking out the trash and a rolling gunfight went by and the little girl was wounded.
On Thursday, police held a press conference to say the girl had been injured before that. McDavis' boyfriend, 24-year-old Cordero Warren, is charged with evidence tampering and having a weapon under disability. McDavis is charged with falsification.
Police say the couple heard shots after the child was injured and blamed her injury on that.
L'Eah Johnson is in Children's Hospital in critical but stable condition.
