BIXBY, Oklahoma -

After a Bixby toddler was hit by a bullet at an Okmulgee fireworks show on the Fourth of July, her parents are looking for answers.

Okmulgee police said they believe someone fired a gun toward the sky in celebration.

"Not how I wanted to spend my fourth of July," mother Amanda Vincent said.

It was the first time the Vincent family went out with their girls to see a Fourth of July fireworks show.

"All of a sudden I felt a thump," father Josh Vincent said.

The family said they were on the edge of a bank parking lot watching the fireworks display when their little girl was hit.

Josh Vincent noticed young Adrian bleeding from her shoulder.

"Next thing you know we're in an ER," Amanda Vincent said.

It wasn't until they got to the hospital that doctors realized a bullet was wedged inside the 3-year-old.

"It's right in between the bone," Josh Vincent said. "If it would have [gone] any other way, it could have been really bad."

Instead of seeing the grand finale, little Adrian was in the hospital all night recovering from a gunshot wound.

Adrian rested all day. She even got up from her mother's lap to play with her sister.

"She's the bravest little girl, she's just really amazing, she's got that personality if everything is going on, even if it's to her she can make you feel better," Amanda Vincent said.

Adrian is at home recouperating, but doctors didn't remove the bullet. It will likely remain in her shoulder for the rest of her life.

Mom and Dad just hope the person who fired the gun during the fireworks display will turn themselves in to police.

"I would really like to know what he was thinking or she was thinking when they decided to shoot a projectile into the air not knowing where it was going to land," Amanda Vincent said.

Josh Vincent said he just wants whomever is responsible to do the right thing in the end.

"Turn yourself in," Josh Vincent said. "I mean, if you were shooting during that night, we need to find out what happened. You need to realize what's going on -- what you did to my little 3-year-old."
