The owner was shocked that someone would try to harm her business, especially with young kids inside. Harris recalls using her parental instincts to protect the infants when bullets began flying into the day care. 

“I looked up, and I had a 1-year-old in her high chair and bullets were still coming through the window,” the owner tells Fox 6 Milwaukee.
