OVER-THE-RHINE, Ohio (WKRC) - Family members say a local bar manager who was shot in the face on Thanksgiving morning should get out of the hospital in the next few days.

A gunman opened fire on Ellie Richardson as she left work at "Lachey's" in Over-the-Rhine.

She had words with someone in a van before the shooting.

Police found the van but have not made any arrests.

Doctors say they're confident Richardson can continue her recovery at home, but she will have to have more surgery.

The Lachey brothers and their group "98 Degrees" are holding a benefit concert for her on December 15th at the Aronoff.
