Charges filed in connection to 8-year-old shot near 47th and Clarke

A Milwaukee woman is facing charges tonight in connection with the shooting of an 8-year-old girl.

Luckily, that girl survived.

Taalya Kelly has been charged with First Degree Reckless Injury. She was in court on Tuesday and given a $1,000 bond. Police say the 8-year-old was standing outside of a home on 47th and Clarke when multiple shots were fired in the area.

Destiny was hit and taken to the hospital. A week later, Milwaukee Police dropped off a giant teddy bear to the girl.

We're told officials are still looking for a second shooter.
