Mother of 17-Month-Old Baby Shot in Odessa, Texas, Mass Shooting Says ‘God Does Not Cause Tragedies Like This, But He is Going to Walk With All of Us’

A 17-month-old girl was among the dozens of people shot in a mass shooting on Saturday in Odessa, Texas, and the toddler’s mother says she doesn’t believe God is behind such tragedies. Rather, God is helping them get through it all. 

Anderson Davis was strapped next to her twin brother in car seats that were hooked to their family’s SUV when a gunman, Seth Ator, fired an assault rifle, killing seven people and wounding more than 20 others.

According to her mother, Anderson had shrapnel in her right chest and a hole through her bottom lip and tongue, which knocked out her front teeth. Once she realized the young girl was shot, the concerned mother began screaming.

“Angels are everywhere,” her mother, Kelby Davis, told CBS 7 after the shooting, saying the rescuers were “truly the calm in the midst of the storm.”

The toddler was airlifted to University Medical Center in Lubbock where she had to undergo surgery.

“I’m grateful Anderson is here,” her mom tearfully said while her daughter was in surgery on Sunday. “I’m so thankful that we’re not one of those families that’s on the other side of this. And it makes you feel guilty almost.”

“But that’s why I just have to remind myself that God does not cause tragedies like this, but God is going to walk with all of us,” Davis stated.
