The family of two of the shooting victims from Thursday night's shooting at Louie's Restaurant at Lake Hefner is giving us an update on their conditions.

The father of 39-year-old Natalie Giles said she was grazed by a bullet in her arm. She was treated at the hospital, but it is in good condition.

Dennis Will said his 12-year-old granddaughter, Syniah Giles, faces a longer recovery time. He said a bullet went through her tailbone and stomach. She will need to be at OU Children's Hospital another five to seven days and will need to rest at home for another 30 days after that.

"She's in a lot of pain," Dennis Will said. "Even the (medications) they give her doesn't keep the pain away and she wakes up screaming."

Dennis Will said he's thankful for the men that intervened to stop suspect Alexander Tilghman during the shooting.

"I thank God they were there and that's one of the reasons I like living in Oklahoma," Dennis Will said. "We honor the second amendment."

There is a GoFundMe page setup for the family of the victims.
