HARTFORD — An 18-year-old Connecticut man has pleaded guilty to firing a gun into a home and hitting a 10-year-old girl in the head.

The Hartford Courant reports that Zakhi Davis pleaded guilty Monday to first-degree assault and carrying a pistol without a permit. He faces up to 10 years in prison at sentencing on Jan. 26.

Davis was 17 when police say he opened fire on a Hartford home in November 2016. Police say Davis was seeking a gunman who fired into his home a day earlier.

Prosecutors say 10-year-old Ariana Wilson was playing Uno with her grandmother when one of Davis’ bullets struck her in the head and lodged itself behind her right eye. The bullet was later removed, and the girl has regained some of her vision.
