Organs Of Child Shooting Victim Donated

KSAL StaffJuly 10, 2015

The grandmother of a Kansas girl who was shot while riding in a car says the 5-year-old has died after surgery to remove her organs.

Lily Nichols died Thursday afternoon at a Topeka hospital.

The girl had been on life support since being shot late Monday night in Topeka. Police say she was in a child seat in the vehicle when she was struck by a bullet during a drive-by shooting.

Police have made no arrests in the case and are asking for anyone with information to come forward. Earlier this week they released photos of two men who investigators say may know something about the shooting.

Lily’s death is the city’s fifth homicide this year.
