Now to this exclusive interview that you'll only see on WLBT.

The daughter of the woman robbed and shot in Belhaven Wednesday night says those events haven't really hit her yet.

In that attack on Euclid Avenue, 69-year-old Carolyn Temple was shot in the hand and stomach.

That bullet is now lodged in Temple's spine.

Temple is still hospitalized at UMMC.

Her daughter, Tress Temple Gardner, is hopeful that she'll recover.

"It's one of those things where I want to hug my mom and my dad and my kids a little tighter, you know, and protect them. I am a little more cautious, but again, who thinks going to the end of their driveway -- or a driveway -- you know, something like this is gonna happen, " Tress Temple Gardner said.

Sunday night in the 10 p.m. Report, hear more from Gardner on her mom's recovery, the investigation and what she hopes comes out of this unexpected situation for their family.
