A Linden mom is locked up tonight accused of shooting a teenage girl and her mom last month, when they tried to get answers about a fight in the neighborhood.

"They said I wouldn't be able to see no more," said Kev-Ana Farr, 16, after being shot in the face.

"I had nightmares about it, at first it was really traumatic," said the Linden-McKinley High School student, who was wounded in the eye, while she and her mom were at a neighbor's home.

Selena Hatcher, 32, was locked up on $1.5 million dollars bond Thursday after being charged with shooting Kev-Ana, and her mom Keyana Thompson, when the pair came to Hatcher's home April 22, to discuss a fight between neighborhood kids that included the two women's children.

Thompson says she wanted to get answers why Hatcher joined the fight and began hitting her children .

"I simply wanted to know what was in her mind and why she would jump into a kids fight?" Said Thompson.

Instead police say, Hatcher opened fire on mother and daughter.

"The mom comes out with a gun," said Thompson, "and said, get away from my house, turns around and starts firing."

Hatcher now facing felony assault charges for the alleged gunfire.

Thompson was grazed in the face by bullet. A mark still can be seen on the side of her cheek where she was struck.

Thompson's daughter, was wounded in the eye, and faces more surgeries to remove the bullet and eye, and give her a prosthetic eyeball.

Kev-Anna says the surgery will have to wait until the end of the year because she just learned she is pregnant.

The teen tells ABC 6/FOX28 losing her eye is not going to stop her from graduating high school, going to college and being a loving caring parent.

"I am a big girl, I can handle my own," said Kev-Ana.
