"She crawled on her knees," Ashelie Taley said. "She's a soldier."
Juanita Talley was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital, where she underwent surgery to remove her appendix, Ashelie Taley said. Juanita Talley also suffered a broken back and damage to her colon when the bullet entered her back, her daughter told the AJC.
Although the video surveillance camera at the complex was not working, Ashelie Talley said the family is hopeful a camera at a nearby nursing home will offer some clues to help police find the men. Her mother has been unable to provide many details to police, she said.
Atlanta police plan to increase patrol in the area around the complex due to other recent crimes, Channel 2 Action News reported.
