The 5-year-old girl who was the victim of a shooting in north Minneapolis earlier this week is recovering after being shot in the foot. 

The girl, identified as Jayda in a GoFundMe, was sleeping early Monday morning when "shots rang out," the online fundraiser says, noting that there were seven shots total. 

According to Minneapolis Police Department, the shooting was reported at 6:36 a.m. in the 2100 block of 4th St. N., with officers arriving at the scene to find the girl suffering from a gunshot wound to her foot.

The 5-year-old was treated at the scene and transported by ambulance to Hennepin County Medical Center for further care.

Preliminary investigation results have led MPD to believe that shots were fired into the rear of the residence, with one round striking the girl.

The GoFundMe says two bullets went through Jayda's room, one of them going past her head and hitting her foot. Jayda "is doing so good and she is so brave," the fundraiser notes, while adding that "she is in good spirits and is still my bossy princess." 

The fundraiser has raised around $100 of a $5,000 goal. Money raised will help the family pay for food while they're in a hotel and searching for a permanent place to stay. It'll also help buy Jayda a new bed, bedding and other household items. 

No arrests have been made in the case and Minneapolis Police continue to investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). All tips are anonymous and may be eligible for a financial reward.
