FT. WORTH, TX (KTVT) - An 18-year-old woman was shot in the head three times and left for dead.
But she's now making a stunning recovery after the attack in Fort Worth, Texas.
Small victories are cause for celebration for Evelyn Bunte's family. The attack that took her sight and partially paralyzed her, has not robbed her of optimism.
When he got a call no dad ever should, Victor Raga took the first flight out from Chicago, falling to his knees, when he saw his daughter at JPS Hospital.
The fact that his 18-year-old is laughing, talking, re-gaining motor skills again, is nothing short of a miracle for this dad.
Despite his pleas, Raga says Evelyn moved to north Texas from their native Illinois in July.
She had plans to start TCC next semester. She'd been working in the meantime.
Two weeks ago a person or people made their way into her boyfriend's East Fort Worth home while she slept.
Police don't know why Bunte was attacked, but they believe the incident was not random.
No one has been arrested so far and investigators are not ruling anyone out.
Bunte's father says she does not appear to remember what happened that night.
