The sister of Imani Green said she found the eight-year-old in a pool of blood after a lone gunman shot her twice in front of relatives in a cafe in Jamaica on Friday.
Janella Palmer, 19, told the BBC her sister was still breathing when she reached her.
We heard gunshots. We ran outside and shouted 'Imani, Imani, Imani'.
I picked her up off the ground and realised she was still breathing. I flagged down a car and they drove us to hospital. The rest is history.
