A five-year-old girl who was shot in a gang-related attack has told of her fears of being hurt again.
Thusha Kamaleswaran, now six, is expected to be permanently wheelchair-bound after a bullet hit her in the chest, shattering her dreams of becoming a dancer.
She told the Daily Mail: "I am scared to get into the car because of the strangers all around us. I worry that someone will try to hurt me again."
"I wanted to be a dancer. I wanted to dance properly, to take lessons," she added.
