MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -A Montgomery student shot in the neck by a stray bullet continues to make progress in the hospital. Those closest to the Lee High School sophomore say she remains upbeat after the scary ordeal, which happened at the hands of another student.

On March 16, Tessa Desmet, 15, was shot as she talked with friends after school. She is gaining more feeling by the day as she deals with her injuries. Those around her are amazed at her strength and determination.

Katie Stockham, a close family friend whom Tessa refers to as her adopted mom, has been by the teen’s bedside in Children's Hospital in Birmingham, along with other family members. Stockham shared video of Tessa using her legs for the first time after the shooting, testing her muscle mobility with resistance. The results were promising.

“It's been a week and she's starting to get a little bit of feeling back,” Stockham said.
