Loved ones not giving up hope on pastor’s daughter injured in church shooting

| February 13, 2012

PINELLAS COUNTY —   Loved ones are not giving up hope on a 20-year-old woman who was accidentally shot at her father’s church, a family friend tells Bay News 9.

Hannah Kelley remains hospitalized in critical condition at Bayfront Medical Center.

The family friend said Kelley's chance of surviving is small but she showed some signs of improvement Sunday night. He said she was blinking both eyes, which is an indicator that some brain function is still there.

A ‘Prayers for Hannah Grace Kelley’ Facebook page has been started, where people have been leaving updates and positive messages. The page has more than 1,000 members.

Some messages so far read:

Praying for you sweet Hannah! I prayed for you thru out the night, and will not cease to pray for you!!!"

Our church and my family and friends and I are praying for this beautiful girl. You're loved by so many people, you'll make it through this."

She's been on my heart ever since I heard the news! It's so touching to know that so many people are praying for her!"

Monday was extremely difficult for Kelley’s co-workers at Sticky Jewelry in St. Petersburg.

Debbie Smoyer has worked with Kelley for about two years.

"It was quite devastating," said Debbie Smoyer. "Because as soon as I opened the door I could sense her presence and realize that she wasn’t going to be here and it was very, very difficult. I knew it would be a difficult day seeing her initials on things she had worked on, seeing her name on orders that she had worked with. It’s difficult."
