Its 10 pm

Its 10 pm and my ex text me, leaves me a message, call me he says is an emergency.
And it was.
My daughter went to visit her dad and in the lobby where he lives, a gang member shoot three bullets that barely miss my daughter.  She is fine, but until I can see her I won't.  He says she only has minor injuries and she sounded like she did not wanted to worry me, which in turns, worries me more.  Her dad says he will bring her home, and reassures me she is fine.  I know he wouldn't lie about it.  But now I don't really think is a good idea for her to visit him.  I don't think is safe.
I can't think straight.  I know she is fine and still.
I hope she is really fine.  One of the other guys was injured and taken to the hospital.  And the sad part is she knows these guys, they went to school with her.
I know am rambling, but until she gets here I just don't know what to do.

HOLY SHIT.

Minor injuries from a gang member is cause for concern. A lot of concern. Legal concern. Your ex is a bloody freaking idiot.

This is really scary for you and your daughter. I know when you see her she will get lots of kisses and hugs.

Perhaps your ex needs to move to a safer place to live. If that can be found. I hope you can get your daughter into some counseling to help her deal with this. All I can say is I\'m glad she is not seriously hurt and I hope she has no major emotional problems from this. (((HUGS)))

You need a legal opinion on her safety. I\'m sure you are aware of post traumatic stress as it would pertain to her witnessing a shooting. Think about this as well. You ex is taking unnecessary risks with your daughter by keeping her with him while this becomes a criminal case. Don\'t let him be an idiot.

She is back home now, she is shaken by the whole thing but at least she is here. I do have to ask for legal advice, because she saw the whole thing.
She is trying to pretend she is ok, but I can see she is still shaking. I am off to make her some tea.
Thank you everyone for your support
