*Rickey Smiley revealed Monday that his daughter was a victim of gun violence in Houston, Texas, over the weekend, after being shot three times Sunday night.

Aaryn Smiley, 19, got caught in the crossfire of what appears to be an incident of road rage that left three others injured.

“I’m just so angry right now,” Smiley said on his Rickey Smiley Morning show on July 6.

Following surgery, Aaryn took to Twitter and explained that she was hit in the leg by a hollow tip bullet and another bullet failed to penetrate the metal frame of her car, per MadameNoire

“I could’ve lost my life yesterday,” she wrote. “If it was another hollow tip bullet and the metal didn’t stop it from coming into the car where my head was I would be dead.”

She sent a graphic photo of her bloody vehicle to Gary Hanes, Entertainment Reporter for The Rickey Smiley Morning Show, who noted on his Twitter page that he considers her like his own daughter. 

“This is the most terrifying thing that has ever happened to me. I won’t be out of the hospital for a while nor will I be able to walk for a while due to nerve damage,” Aaryn captioned the pic.

She added, “Scariest part of all this is the fact that I’m alone. They won’t let me see my parents or let anyone come in because of Covid. I’m terrified.”

Rickey Smiley is supporting his daughter from a distance. The comedian thanked the Houston Police Department for allowing his family to wait on the hospital premises where his daughter is recovering from surgery.

The other three victims of the shooting are also expected to survive their injuries.
