Skyla Davis, Baby Shot In Miami Drive-By While Still In Utero, Comes Home From Hospital (VIDEO)

MIAMI -- A baby who suffered a gunshot wound from a drive-by while still in utero came home Tuesday night after spending her first month of life in a hospital.

Watch the WSVN video above.

In December, eight-months-pregnant Tiffany Davis was exiting an Overtown convenience store where her baby's father worked when she was struck in a hail of gunfire.

Another man who exited the store first was shot and killed. Davis was struck in the head and stomach.

Although initial reports indicated that the bullets missed the unborn baby, it was later reported that the infant was struck in the arm. Doctors delivered Skyla Davis prematurely at eight months, according to NBC6.

Mother Davis is still in Jackson Memorial Hospital; she has a bullet lodged in her brain. She has yet to meet her newborn daughter, who is now at home with her father and grandparents.

“I’m looking for an apartment in another area and hope to move away to help my daughter life in a safer place,” father Phillip Milton told CBS Miami.

Meanwhile the baby girl wears a soft cast as she continues to heal from the gunshot wound that shattered her elbow.

Dr. Tanya Zakrison, the trauma surgeon who treated Skyla, told ABC News she's concerned by all the gun injuries brought into Jackson's Ryder Trauma Center, about 600 annually.

"This epidemic of gun violence is affecting unborn children," she said, emphasizing that assault weapons only worsen injuries. "[It] looks like a bomb has gone off on the inside."

The handgun used in the drive-by that injured Sklya and her mother and killed another man was a Glock 10, one of the same weapons used by Adam Lanza in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, ABC reports.

The driver and gunman involved in the drive-by are still at large.
