    Default Girl, 7, Shot six Times While Protecting Mother

    A Detroit girl who jumped in front of a hail of bullets to protect her mother from an enraged gunman Saturday night is being hailed as an “angel from heaven.”

    Alexis Goggins, 7, was hit protecting her mother Selietha Parker, 30, after Parker's ex-boyfriend Calvin Tillie, 29, forced the pair and family friend Aisha Ford to drive to Six Mile Road under threat of death, the Detroit News reported.

    Tillie, who was armed with a handgun, shot Parker in the side of the head and in the arm after Ford stopped for gas, but before he could fire a third shot, Goggins jumped over the seat between her mother and Tillie, begging him to stop, the Detroit News reported. Without hesitation, Tillie reportedly pumped six shots into the child.

    The first grader is in stable condition at Children’s Hospital in Detroit with gunshot wounds to the eye, left temple, chin, cheek, chest and right arm, the Detroit News reported. Parker was admitted to the hospital, but later released.

    Tillie was arrested at the scene. He had dated Parker for six months, the Detroit News reported.

    I just don't understand what goes through a person's mind that allows them to hurt a child. It just defies logic.

    This piece of garbage should be taken to the zoo and left in the tiger cage. Don't feed them for a week and just throw him in there and walk away. That's exactly what I would do with him, and I wouldn't feel even a little bit of remorse. I really hope that little girl lives and grows up to have a good life.

    OMG that poor little girl. I'm so glad she and her mother survived. How scary! She truly is an angel.

    And I agree, send the animal to the cage.

    Guns don't hurt people. I suppose.

    When I read the title I was 100% positive the girl would be dead. A miracle she's not. I agree with vhin04 - hope she has a great life, she clearly deserves it.

    Four shots to the head, one to the chest and one to the arm? Yeah, you could throw this into the miracle category. What an amazing story and what a brave little girl.

    Yeah, the story misplaced the name "Calvin Tillie" when it meant to say "the gun jumped up and started shooting the child on its own." There will be a retraction tomorrow, and Tillie will be suing for defamation. I heard he egged the gun on, though, as we know guns have bad tempers.

    OK, so you made ridiculous comments about guns and the girl being a miracle. Are you a happy person? Why so much hate?

    Precisely the kind of guy who should receive capitol punishment via gunshots to the knees, followed by a beating to death. Knowing the little girl survived made this a lot easier to read.

    I'm pretty sure what Mish was saying was "A miracle she's not dead" - I know, I read it the same way you two did the first time as well.

    Guns do not hurt people. People hurt people. If he stabbed her 7 times would you have been saying - Knives don't hurt people. I suppose.

    Its a shame and I have said a prayer for the mother and girl. To blame this on guns is ignorant.

    What guts and love that little girl had. She saw someone hurt her mommy and climbed over the front seat, not to help her mommy but to stop the gunman from hurting her mommy again. It's mind-boggling. If I believed in a God, I would say that her actions won her an intervention with Death. Regrettably, I fear she willl have a painful recovery to suffer through.

    I hope she will be rewarded by having a loving, caring, safe community to help her through. She's worth it.
