Pastor Johnie Johnson, right, led a prayer for the recovery of 9-year-old Trinity Smith. People linked arms as they prayed to support her father and stepmother, Raishawn and Korrina Smith at North Memorial Hospital in Robbinsdale. Also with them to lend their support were the parents of another child shot recently, Dorice Jackson and Ladavionne Garrett.

Dozens of neighbors and community outreach workers gathered Sunday outside North Memorial Health Hospital in Robbinsdale to pray for Trinity Ottoson-Smith, a 9-year-old girl shot in the head while bouncing on a trampoline the night before.

Trinity remained in critical condition Sunday evening, according to Minneapolis police spokesman John Elder.

She was shot about 8:30 p.m. Saturday in the Jordan neighborhood while playing with other children, who were not injured.
